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.
Welcome back for the second half of the 2023–2024 school year. We are very excited with the progress our students made first semester in their math, science, and English classes. Students who were not successful in a core class first semester were placed in an online class for second semester to ensure that they stay on track to graduate. Our staff is available to assist students in any courses that they are struggling in - especially during extra learning time (ELT) which replaced ZAP.
We have a variety of events planned for the upcoming semester including the Space Settlement and Design competition at the Biosphere II, scholarship night for our seniors; Arizona Youth Survey for our sophomores and seniors; National FFA Week at the end of February, student council blood drive, AZSci test and ACT test for juniors in March; ACT Aspire test for all freshmen in April, talent show, FFA banquet, and spring fling for our students after testing.
We are very excited about all of the events that we are able to provide our staff and students. We look forward to partnering with our WHS families to finish this school year strong. Be sure to check out our calendar of events that was mailed out with first semester report cards. If you are interested in helping out for any of our events, please contact me or join our WHS Parent Advisory Committee.
Thank you for all of your support throughout this school year. Please reach out to our staff if you need any support for yourself or your student this semester, and stay in contact with your student’s teachers if your student is struggling with any concept or assignment. Working together will help all of our students finish the school year on a high note. We Are Willcox!
