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.
As we complete the 2020–2021 school year we like to take a moment to look back from where we started and what we have accomplished this year. When the school year began in August we were unsure how our new routines would affect our staff, students, and their families as students came back to campus. Once we made the necessary adjustments to those routines, our staff and students rose to the occasion and made them our new normal.
We are so proud of what we have accomplished this school year (much more than other districts across the nation). Our students have benefited from face-to-face instruction from their teachers, participating in spirit week and other homecoming activities, participation and attending athletics events, lunch with their friends, FFA and other club events, etc. This spring our students are looking forward to their junior/senior prom, ALLIES spirit week activities, baccalaureate, and graduation during a time when other schools are trying to figure out how to begin their in-person learning routines on their campuses.
We truly live our vision of work hard, have integrity, and show respect on our campus through the actions of our staff, students, and their families. The support that we have received this past year from our community has been second to none, especially with the cases of water donated from individuals, Valley Telecom, and Amy Lock of Mann Mortgage. We also appreciate the extra help from our Willcox High School Parent Advisory Committee (PAC) by providing snacks and drinks for our staff during parent-teacher conferences to participating in interview sessions during our accreditation process.
Whatever challenges we have had to face this year, we have taken them head on and continue to move forward as the year progresses. We look forward to finishing this school year strong and are preparing to start the 2021–2022 school year on a high note. We will continue to strive to educate and prepare all students for a successful future.
