Be the Best - Where Effort is Required!
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

Cowboy Nation,

Our students are gearing up for the end of the school year, and they are ready to finish strong. This is the time of the year that testing is in full throttle throughout the state, and we are confident that our students will give their best effort this year. At the high school level, our juniors take the ACT and AzSCI test, and our freshmen will take the ACT Aspire test. 

As the school year winds down, we are very encouraged by the growth that our students have shown while using our new Springboard Math and Springboard English curriculum. The increase in rigor was a change for our staff and our students, but, as always, everyone rose to the challenge and overcame any obstacles that they faced along the way. We appreciate all of the hard work and extra professional development that our teachers completed to ensure a smooth transition. 

Reading Plus has also proven to be a successful addition to the services and supports that we provide to our students. At the end of our first semester this year, we had 35 students improve three or more levels, and we also had 24 students complete the program. (Of those 24,16 were juniors!) This summer, our English department will implement a summer reading program that will begin with the honors English students. In the future, this program will be provided to every student on campus, to prepare them to meet expectations for testing and state standards. This is another step forward that Willcox High School is taking to support all levels of learners. 

We look forward to finishing the 2022-23 school year on a high note. With the continued support of our families, this becomes easier to achieve every year. If you, or someone you know, would like to volunteer in our classrooms or join our WHS Parent Advisory Committee (PAC), please don’t hesitate to reach out to our office. Our staff and students will always welcome the added support and expertise that our families and community provide to us. Thank you for everything you have done for us this year – let’s make the 2023-24 school year even better. We Are Willcox – All in!
