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.

WHS Students and Families:
Beginning the week of November 30 WUSD will return to the split schedule (the one we followed at the beginning of the school year) until the end of this semester. As a reminder, red group (students with the last name that begins with the letters A–L) will meet on Mondays and Wednesdays, the white group (students with the last name that begins with the letters M–Z) will meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Students that requested to move groups in August were sent an email regarding the group they will be in now. In order to keep numbers even in classrooms, only students that have to change groups because of family transportation can move to the other group with administrative approval (call or email me with the request).
We will provide food services along Bisbee Avenue adjacent to our cafeteria (same as the summer meal services). We will hand out breakfast and lunch between 8:00 and 9:00 a.m. daily and is free of charge for all students enrolled in Willcox Unified School District.
We will provide a safe place for our high school students for anyone who may need to come onto campus during their off-campus day. Please email me so I can plan for proper supervision during this time.
Students who have had to quarantine this semester and are behind in their schoolwork, can choose to attend classes Monday through Thursday to make up tests, projects, assignments, etc. Again, you must contact me to make that arrangement. We strongly discourage students to come to campus on their off day, without administrative approval.
Please remember that if a student feels sick at home, please keep them at home and have them get their assignments from their teachers through email or Google Classroom. Students are responsible for contacting their teachers and turning assignments in on time.
We understand that this has been a different school year, but with all of the obstacles that our staff, students, and families have overcome, this will definitely be a year to remember. Thank you for all of your continued support and if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me by email or at (520) 384-8668. Thank you and have a Happy Thanksgiving!
Tammy Hall, Principal
