Iam employed here at mohave high school, let me first say that I have worked at a lot of schools, and this is one of the worst! There is absolutely no supervision for these kids, there kids roaming the halls at all hours of the day, cell phones in every classroom, iPods, making out in the halls, the kids here are incredibly disrespectful! And that comes from THE PARENTS!!!! The staff, not all of the staff but a lot of the staff don't care, the cafeteria hardly ever has any adults to supervise all of these kids! No proctors walking around campus, so the kids just do whatever they want! They don't follow the rules, they eat in the halls, even though there are signs that say no eating, they throw there trash andfood on the floor , it's a compltet pack of respect, once in awhile you see the principle and both vice principles standing around outside the office, talking and laughing and totally ignoring what goes on, there is no support system for the staff here, that do care about the kids! And the parents are the biggest problem, it has to start at home, it's always easiest to blame the school, and they aren't blameless, but it needs to change! My god look at the day care center!

Mohave High School, Bullhead City,Arizona This school is a good school but they need to recruit good teachers that are going to prepare the students for college. All high schools should be on college programs. We need to pay the teachers for what they teach in the class rooms. Arizona shools are far behind other schools in curriculum and it does not give the students a chance at good college because they are failing to meet the standards. We need to bring our education standards up. If we raise the bar on education you would be surprised that the kids will step up to what you are teaching. Most students are wanting to learn and be pushed beyond the limits. This is what seperates the students that want to learn and move on.

To be completely honest, moving here from a 5 star school system to this kind of environment was difficult. Not only is this school in DESPERATE need of COMMUNICATION between staff, students and parents, but it also lacks in the department of handling the Extracurricular activities so that it benefits the students as well. I do believe this school has some "less than worthy" staff or "volunteers" who have been making the years for certain students doing well, a living nightmare. My children go to school to earn an education, not be knocked down by staff telling them "THEY CAN'T" do something. If the staff grew up and acted their age, perhaps the level of maturity among the students might as well! TRY LISTENING TO THE CHILDREN, THEY ARE THE IMPORTANT ONES........DUH!

This school was alright for the 2.5 years I went here. Recently things have gone down a bit, such as the emphasis on education and other problems. Although my years here have been rather down, I have made some friends that I miss so much and really wish I could be there to see them again, especially one friend who has made my days brighter than they ever were at the school. Overall, a decent school, but could use some upgrades.

We have two High Schools in this area. Both lack academic advanced excellence. I believe both are Average. I believe parent involvement and communication is the basic factor to a better school which both school lack. These schools need leadership.

This school s not suitable for any child. The freshman last year were terrible. They dressed in grown woman clothes and went around and tried to get older students to sleep with them. over half of the freshman left school last year pregnant by seniors or seniors from the year before. This school also has teachers that have been currently fired for hitting their students, and man handling them. 2009-2010

My opinion of mohave high school is one of the worst I have seen. As a parent, I would expect the school listens to a student before punishing them to the point of grilling them daily on something they did not do!

Mohave is by no means perfect, but I definitely think the school makes the most of what is available to it in this area, and I am very happy here. All the faculty and teacher genuinely care for us students.

I have three children in the high school. My oldest son was having trouble in school and the principal intervened and helped him out. If it wasn't for the help of the administration our son would have dropped out of school. The real issues are the negative parental involvement.

I am a parent of three students at Mohave High School. The administration is extremely supportive of all students and teachers. The teachers are extremely caring and willing to help all studnts. There is a lack of parent support. The current principal has raised test scores and cleaned the discipline of the entire school community.

I have two children attending Mohave High School and they are in all the honors courses and are doing very well. The principal in wonderful, he has helped my children be successful and has helped many many of the underprivileged kids in the school. He cares about the students not the politics.

I have a student that graduated last year, and one currently attending. The teachers are mostly good, but this has to be the worst administration. The admin itself needs to be changed.

I have had two kids graduate from Mohave high and they both did great under the guidance of the best principal Steve Sexton. I know many politics come to play in how or why we can keep such a principal like we have now. I have one student left and thank god it's his last year. There are many great teachers at the school and most of them feel the same way I do. What goes around comes around.

Most of the teachers are decent but admin and board seem way more concerned about attendance and federal funding then the students. They need to be more concerned what the child is learning than how many hours he's in class.

My daughter attends Mohave High and she loves it. I've met her teachers and I was impressed with what they had to offer my daughter academically. My daughter also plays soccer for the school and her experience has been wonderful. Overall I think this school is great.Your children will get what they put in to it.

The guidance departmant and the teachers are the only things that save this school. A majority of the teachers sincerely care about the students, and are easy to talk to when there is a problem. However, the administration is a mess. They favor the athletes and disregard the needs of anybody else. They act completely unprofessional towards students, parents, and even the teachers.

My son attends Mohave. Most of his teachers have been excellent, especially Honors English. We try to stay involved and be sure he is making the right choices for college prep. Teachers and counselors are available by email through the school website, and that has helped. Parents must know that their involvement is so important to student success and they shouldn't wait until there are problems to check up on what's going on at school. There are dual enrollment classes available with Mohave Community College, but they are sort of confusing to figure out, and don't seem to fit what students need. There are plenty of extracurricular opportunities. Administration works hard to provide a safe learning environment and qualified staff.

6 Teachers on the current staff are national merrit scholars, the school is lucky to have them. Poor parental involvement is the problem with this school. Parents are a childs most important teacher and too many locals expect teachers to raise their kids for them.

Admin cares very little of how well a student does as long he/she shows up enough they get there funding. District on a whole has way to many extra days off maybe why they have such a bad attendance policy (miss 10 auto flunk) district starts, ends, and breaks at wierd times of the year! I have two kids in this school and 2 in lower grades, the school system is THE major reason we are moving!

All of my kids have gone to MHS and done of them honestly did so good till my last two and why? Well. That is because of Steve Sexton. He sits and talks to his students. He is everything a school needs in a principle. It is just to bad that he is going. All I have to say is Steve you did a great job changing that school around. Thanks
