Went to this school for kinder to 6th grade lets just say i can count on one hand the nice people i can remember #1 being mr. Crow the principal at my time he was awesome !!! Super nice and truly cared about us as students. I went to school with his kid and she was always the smartest of the class hes awesome.!! The janitor, the cafeteria ladies which were nice to all the kids really friendly and you run into them 10 years later and they still remember your name. As for the teachers a big percentage of them just go there because they need the paycheck and i can remember them saying if you want to learn learn and if you dont im still getting paid wowww way to motivate the students. Its no wonder you have the test scores you have!!

This is the worst school. There have been bugs, bats, teachers that dont know where kids need to be or on the wrong bus. We just moved here and are moving again I will never let my kids go to this school again

Both my children attend MVE and This 07-08 is the first year I can say I am impressed with the improvements the school has made. I am truely moved by the entire staffs inthusiasm for the current year. MVE has a lot to offer their students with a wide range of afterschool activities, specialized reading program, and a staff eager to help young minds succeed. The PTA is small yet mighty this year! Working hard, getting the whole community involved with the school. Hoping to bring back a sence of neighborhood/community pride. Where the school lacks in parent envolvement, they make up for with their creativity. I am proud to be a parent of children who attend Mohave Valley Elementary. I know they are learning tools to succeed in life not only as children, but as future adults.

falculty cares about there students, this includes office help, teachers, lunch room, special aid teachers. the bus system liadlaw does not have any organization, i do believe the wellfare of the children is not there concern. 120 degrees and no air conditioner for months, un safe bus stops, ect. list goes on.

Good school where the staff tries hard to work with a diverse population. Attendance is a problem, but everyone seems to be looking for answers.

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.
