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.
Students and Families of WHS,
As we begin a new school year, we would like to introduce a new tool that we will use for registration—PowerSchool Enrollment Express. This online platform will allow existing students in Willcox Unified Schools and new students to our district to update their information (without filling out several pages of information at registration). Please follow the instructions we sent home to set up your new parent account so you can begin the registration process once your sign up is complete.
We are very excited to begin a new school year, especially after the success we had from the 2020–2021 school year. We are hopeful that our community members and families will continue to support our efforts to provide positive experiences and quality, rigorous instruction to our students at Willcox High School. We will also continue to offer a laptop to every student to enable them to have the tools needed to work toward success in each of their classes.
Your student will be receiving an email with a survey regarding internet connectivity within the next few weeks. Please encourage them to check their student email frequently so you can access the seven-question survey. If you have any questions regarding the survey, please don’t hesitate to email me. If your student does not receive the email by the time registration opens, please have them email me so I can add them to their appropriate student email group.
Registration for the 2020–2021 school year will begin the week of July 26. During registration, students and their families will pick up class schedules, pay school, athletics, and class fees, and check out a Chromebook and charger. You can find our district fee schedule on the district website under the student quick links. Students and parents/guardians must fill out and sign paperwork to receive a Chromebook and charger. Registration dates and times are as follows:
- Monday, July 26 - Senior registration from 7:00 to 11:00 a.m.
- Monday, July 26 - Junior registration from noon to 4:00 p.m.
- Tuesday, July 27 - Sophomore registration from 7:00 to 11:00 a.m.
- Tuesday, July 27 - Freshmen registration from noon to 4:00 p.m.
- Wednesday, July 28 and Thursday, July 29 - New students to the district or students who could not come in on Monday or Tuesday (office open same hours as listed above)
Please remember to fill out registration paperwork through the PowerSchool Enrollment Express portal prior to attending registration. If you are unable to set up your new parent account, we will be able to help you on the day of registration. We will give schedules to students once all of their registration paperwork is complete on the PowerSchool Enrollment Express portal.
We look forward to the upcoming school year. Great things will happen this year, and we can't wait for you and your student to be a part of it. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us. Go, Cowboys and Cowgirls!
