Welcome to WHS!
Welcome to the website of Willcox High School, home of the Cowboys! We are located in Cochise County, Arizona, in the quaint historic town of Willcox, and we serve students in grades nine through 12. Though we are a small school, we take pride in providing an excellent education for our students that will empower them to become responsible and compassionate adults and prepare them to succeed in a highly technological world.
In addition to our outstanding academic curriculum, we also offer special education and gifted education programs to cater to specific student needs as well as a variety of clubs and athletic activities for those seeking extracurricular opportunities.
Our Mission Statement
Educate and prepare all students for a successful future.
The beginning of our school year has started off great! Our staff and students have been working hard getting back in the routine of a regular school day. We appreciate all of the support we’ve received this year from the turnout at our first ever freshman orientation to our open house and of course the huge success of our We Are Willcox community festival!
“We Are Willcox” is our district motto this school year. We want everyone to get used to all of us being in this together for our community to be strong and successful. Local businesses, the elementary and middle schools, and even individuals that do not have students who attend our schools are all working together for our students. The students in our district will be receiving “We Are Willcox” red t-shirts soon, and we encourage them to wear them when we have our “We Are Willcox” Wednesdays this school year.
As we move through the school year, continue to encourage your students to communicate with their teachers if they are having any difficulty with concepts that are being taught. You are also welcome to communicate with your student’s teachers and develop a working relationship to provide additional support for your student and their success at Willcox High School. You can also encourage your student to attend Z.A.P., tutoring, or Friday school to receive the extra help that they need. Our teachers are here to help anyone who needs it.
As a reminder, our district is in the process of attaining reauthorization for our maintenance and operation budget override in this year’s mail in ballot special election. We currently have a district Parent Advisory Committee that is made up of community and family members of our staff and students. If you would like to join the WUSD PAC, you can reach out to Cindy Chaffey (the team leader) for meeting dates and times. A fact sheet is also available on our website and Facebook page. We also have an active WHS PAC, and we are always looking for new members. If you have an interest in joining our PAC, please email me and I will add you to our email group. We meet quarterly during the school year, and our next meeting will be on September 20 at 4:00 p.m. in room 307 at the high school.
Again, we would like to thank you for all of your support this school year. We believe that this school year is going to be fantastic and are looking forward to the great accomplishments our students will have this year. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me either by email or phone call. We Are Willcox!
