WMS Is Cowboy Country

We Are How We Treat Each Other. Be The Change!

Willcox Middle School is nestled in southeastern Arizona, in the City of Willcox, and we serve grades 5–8. Located in the high desert and enjoying our wonderful temperate weather all year long, visitors and residents agree it is one of the best cities in Arizona. Come visit us in northern Cochise County—near the mining community of Dos Cabezas and the Chiricahua Mountains.

Our excellent administration, teachers, and staff members are here to provide not only a wonderful education but also a network of support for all of your Cowboys and Cowgirls. We want your children to be successful both in school and in life, and we provide many challenging opportunities to help them learn, develop talents, and become well-rounded individuals. Whether it is in the classroom, on the court or field, participating in our fine arts, agriculture, or another program, we strive for excellence!

We invite and encourage you to browse our website, learn more about us, saddle-up to one of our events, and of course contact us if you have any questions, and/or just want to say “Howdy!"

A Message from Principal Chaim

Dear Parents and Students of Willcox Middle School:

Communication and collaboration between staff and parents ensures greater success in our students’ educational growth. This partnership is solidified by our families’ support of the academic and extra-curricular programs offered at WMS. As our students engage in these activities and grow from further interactions with positive and engaging extracurricular opportunities, future disciplinary actions diminish.

While we offer several opportunities through sports, several after-school programs, and are looking toward building even more programs for our students in the future - parent involvement is a cornerstone to student achievement. The students who truly blossom and thrive not only take charge of their studies themselves, they have staff and parents who also support them. Our staff is committed to academic excellence and collaboration with parents. One avenue for communication is through our biannual parent-teacher conferences.

Our first parent-teacher conferences of the 2020–2021 school year will be on Tuesday, October 20 and Wednesday, October 21 from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. by appointment only. Please contact your child’s teacher by email.

It is the mission of WMS to provide all students with high levels of academic and personal achievement. Let’s all do our part to make it so. We are Willcox!
