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 to the 2022–2023 school year! We are so excited to see all of our returning and new students on our campus at our upcoming registration week (July 25–July 28). Our returning students are eager to continue their destination of graduation, and we are excited to welcome all new students to our campus who may be coming to Willcox High School (WHS) for the first time.
This will be a special year for all of our students and teachers as we continue to increase rigor in the classroom to ready our students for life beyond high school. Reading Plus data has shown significant growth across our campus. Over 44% of our students are reading at or above grade level which is almost double the number of students who were reading at or above grade level two years ago. We have adopted a new curriculum for our Math, English, and History Departments that will support all levels of students at WHS.
With the input from our student leadership team and building leadership team (along with our staff), WHS will introduce a change in our meeting times for the 2022–2023 school year to accommodate the large number of students who are involved with various activities, clubs, and athletics. On Mondays and Tuesdays our students will report to their 1st period class at 7:45 a.m. and continue periods two through seven for the remainder of the day. On Wednesdays and Thursdays our students will report to their 7th period class at 7:45 a.m. and continue periods six through one for the remainder of the day. We are hoping this will help periods five through seven allow more students to attend class instead of attending their extracurricular activity that is typically scheduled in the afternoons. We will monitor the progress during the first semester and will communicate with the staff, students, and families the progress of the new bell schedule.
We will continue to work alongside families to provide the education that their student(s) deserves. With the help of our community, we can accomplish anything. Last year our district motto was “We Are Willcox” and adding to that is “All In” for this school year. At Willcox High School we believe that working together will enable students to be successful, no matter what they wish to pursue after high school. We welcome you to reach out to our staff for any help you may need. Please follow us on Facebook or our website at for updated information. We look forward to seeing everyone at registration in a couple of weeks. If you have any questions before then, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us. Welcome back!
