Willcox High School Staff 2022-2023

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.

Principal's Message

Willcox High School Families,

Welcome to the 2024–2025 school year! We look forward to working with you this year to ensure the success of your student(s). We send this letter out every summer to notify families of some upcoming dates and important information that they will need. If you have any questions about anything contained in this mailing, please don’t hesitate to contact us (if we don’t answer the phone, please leave a message).

Willcox High School registration will be the week of July 22 (don’t worry, if your student isn’t here that week, they can stop by our offices the following week). Families can pick up registration packets from our administration office (room 201) at the high school beginning on July 1 to complete the paperwork prior to the dates listed below. Class schedules will not be handed out until the registration packet is complete (including signatures and proof of residency). 

Monday, July 22: Seniors from 7:00 to 11:00 a.m., and Juniors from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Tuesday, July 23: Sophomores from 7:00 to 11:00 a.m., and Freshmen from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 pm..

      Wednesday. July 24: Freshman Orientation from 11:00 a.m. to noon. We will be meeting with freshmen and their families in the auditorium to review our expectations for the upcoming school year, and then everyone will be able to tour the campus with their schedules in hand and buildings will be open during this time. FFA will host a hot dog/chips lunch for everyone to enjoy.

      Wednesday, July 24 and Thursday, July 25: New students to the district (this does not include Cochise, Bonita, or Pearce students who already filled out registration paperwork this past spring). If you know of someone who will be transferring from another high school, please encourage them to bring their high school transcript with them when they meet Mr. Lotts, our guidance counselor (it will help us build a schedule that fits their needs). 

      If you have more than one student that needs to register (ex. a sister is a junior, but her younger brother is a freshman), you are welcome to bring both students in at one time during one of the designated date/time slots.

      Once you are at registration, please review your student’s schedule and remember that WHS has fees for specific classes (every student pays a $40.00 student activity fee, and every student is offered $30.00 Chromebook insurance for the school year. Damaged/lost Chromebooks may cost $250.00 if they are not insured). We’ve included our WUSD student fee schedule in this mailing for everyone to review. If you are unable to pay the full amount of fees during registration, you are welcome to set up a payment plan for the school year (Chromebook insurance coverage will begin once the full $30.00 amount is paid). We take cash or checks (and possibly credit cards) during registration and the school year.

      We have also included a sample of our dress code expectations at WHS. More specific information will be provided in our WHS student handbook that your student will receive at registration. Please review those expectations with your student(s) and provide support for those expectations throughout the school year.

      Again, we look forward to working with you this upcoming school year. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us at (520) 384-8601 (follow the prompts and if there is no answer, please leave a message), email me, or call (520) 384-8668. We see everyone in July. Enjoy the rest of your summer!
