WMS Is Cowboy Country

Small School with Big Opportunities

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 Patterson

Parents and Students of Willcox Middle School,

Willcox Middle School will be checking out Chromebooks to students who have internet access, but no electronic device (i.e. tablet, laptop, desktop computer, etc.) Wednesday, April 8. A parent/guardian must be present to sign the use of technology resources in the instruction form. The eighth-grade class will be first, from 8:00 to 9:00 a.m. followed by seventh-grade, sixth-grade, and fifth-grade from 9:00 a.m. to noon. We will only check out one Chromebook per household. WUSD is still working with Valley Telecom to help families who have no internet access. Please continue to check emails, our WMS web page, and our WMS Facebook page for updated information. Thank you for your continued support! We are Willcox!!
