The principal and teachers are bullies and allow kids with special needs to get picked on so they do not have to actually work.

This is the worse school for your child to attend for education if you can, keep them away from this school education is not good and seem to me they just push your child through school no matter what grades and as far as college lucky if they can make college if education is out of this school district

Wanted to tell the music teacher that their concert last night was awesome! What talent among your students. It left me uplifted and happy that I drove from Willcox to see the program. Well done!
