My granddaugther is attending Mohave Middle School since August 2012. She is in 7th grade, and I am VERY IMPRESSED with all six (6) of her teachers, the principal Mr. A., the school counselor Ms. M. - and last, but not least, Ms. B. at the office. Thank you.

I sure hope the new principal can have an impact. It is so sad to see this school continue to decline over the years.

I can't say enough wonderful things about Mohave. Kids aren't afraid to go to school like they are at Ingleside. The principal is super responsive and all of my son's teachers really care. They respond instantly to calls and e-mails. There could be more clubs though, for kids who don't play sports.

Just completed two years at Mohave. Mr. McKenzie is a top-notch principal. He knows how to throw a good dance and powerhouse. Kids really have fun. Zero incidences with cigarette's, alcohol or drugs. Zero safety issues. My daughter loved Mohave. The wonderful staff contributed to my daughter's blossoming. ...  Read more

The Mohave staff & teachers are doing the best they can with the limited resources and funding provided by the school district. Overall, alot more parents really need to step up and get involved with the school to help the kids!
