Our Mission

Welcome to the Willcox Unified School District website. We are located in the beautiful high desert town of Willcox, nestled in the southeastern corner of Arizona. Our district educates approximately 1,300 students in kindergarten through 12th grade. We may be a small, rural school district, but we are big on education and employ highly trained teachers who are dedicated to our students.

We’ve packed our website full of information about our schools, policies, programs, and job opportunities. Our site is informative and the first place to look when you need information about Willcox Unified School District. We are always here to answer any questions you may have, and we look forward to the opportunity to serve you.

A Message from our Superintendent

Thank you for visiting our site and having an interest in our schools. Willcox Unified School District offers a full menu of choices for students. Our music program is exceptional and has gained statewide attention. Many of our athletic teams compete in the state finals, and our career and technical education program has offerings in many career fields. Our elementary school has an impressive reading program meeting the needs of our young readers no matter what their reading level. New teachers to the district receive substantial training and mentoring. We also have an impressive special services department. In Willcox, not only do we get the job done, we do it right!

I encourage you check out the great secret here in Willcox. We have dedicated teachers, outstanding schools, friendly people, and incredible weather. Please visit the rest of the website, and check out everything that is happening in “cowboy country.”
