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!

I graduated top 10% teachers=absolutely awesome! Better than my college professors! The teachers in that school pour their hearts and souls into the kids, providing numerous clubs, dedication, and support.

Very dissipointed with this school. Seem more interested in promoting the recreational activities of the town, rather than the educational values of the school.

Mohave High School really disapointed me, They dont pay any attention to students needs and they dont care about students attending the school.

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

I wish Mohave High School's emphasis would focus more on education than on rules and regulations.

About the tests

In 2012-2013 Arizona used the Arizona Instrument to Measure Standards (AIMS) to test students in reading and mathematics in grades 3 through 8 and 10, writing in grades 5, 6, 7, and 10, and in science in grades 4, 8 and 10. GreatSchools' profiles currently show AIMS mathematics, reading and writing results. 2013 AIMS grade 10 results represent on-track 10th graders for the 2013 test year. AIMS is a standards-based test, which means that it measures how well students have mastered Arizona learning standards. Students must pass the grade 10 AIMS in order to graduate. The goal is for all students to meet or exceed state standards on the test.

For high schools, AIMS results, AYP status and graduation/dropout rates are used. Schools are identified as Excelling, Highly Performing, Performing Plus, Performing, Underperforming, Failing to Meet Academic Standards or Pending.
