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

April 1, 2021

Dear WMS Families and Community,

I want to take this opportunity to thank you for taking the time to visit your child’s teachers at parent teacher conferences on March 16 and 17. Maintaining a continuous, positive communication with your children’s teachers will make a difference in your child’s education. All staff members and administrative staff are here to help! Please continue to work with your child and stress the importance to accept the opportunities given to them to be successful. With your help, we can instill lifelong values in our students to work hard, exceed expectations, and that they can appreciate the education they have.

Our extracurricular activities have continued to shine as well. The STEM club held a successful venue for STEM night, in conjunction with the Bisbee Science Lab at the WMS gym on March 25. Sports, such as the WMS track and field and boys baseball, are also faring well, though their seasons are just beginning. Our children are fired up! Furthermore, the WMS student council is planning an activity that will impact students positively...Look out for more news at a later date.

This pandemic forced all of us to rethink different aspects of our lives safely. In education, our teachers and students adapted to different teaching and learning methods. Looking back at how our year had started, we began with online learning, from there to a staggered schedule, to in-person learning, and to the physical closure of our school. Despite this, our commitment and dedication to our students remained. The school physically closed; yet, schooling continued. We persevered. This is what made us resilient in the face of adversity. Moving forward, together we will continue our tradition to provide our educational community with excellence in education combined with extracurricular activities.

Yours in education,

Principal Chaim
