    "At our daughters request she went to Mohave right out of Kiva. She has wonderful friends and she didn't want to be separated from them. After that first year, and again at her request, we went to a charter school, Great Hearts Cicero and now could not be happier. Mohave, in a word, Sucked. They try hard, and the principle seems like a good, albeit a bit disconnected, guy. The problem is that the teachers just cannot- and I cannot stress this enough- cannot deliver. She had 10 minutes of worthless homework at Mohave while at Cicero she now will come to me with a book in hand to share what she has just read while doing her work. It is like she has awoken, inspired by these teachers who are leagues above anything she has experience in the public schools. She was in the self directed gifted program at Mohave and it was so far below what she is doing now I have to just shake my head at the misnomer. If you are on the fence, and your kid is hungry for knowledge, you have to think twice about going here. On the positive there was no bullying and everyone was pretty nice to each other. To add another negative, and a big one, they do not have lockers. The bar is so low..."

    "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 am concerned about oversight and policies at Mohave when I found out that an entire class of 8th graders are playing M for Mature video games in the computer lab during school hours. Apparently, the teacher in charge of the lab is letting the students use the school computers while other students who need to use a computer for actual school work are essentially not allowed into the lab. I couldn't believe it when I heard about it, but anyone who has access should go in the lab during lunch hours and find out for yourself."

    "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 know they are trying hard to turn things around, but as a parent, I am highly concerned about the serious discipline issues they have and the continued decline in academic performance there."

    "I think this school is trying to get its act together. They have gotten very strict, because they have had to but it has cut down on the school fights and bullying. Big difference from a year ago. Great choir and music school. Academically, needs to step it up. Lots of kids falling through the cracks. But with programs in place, if a kid doesnt do their homework, lunch detention until they do, this school will excell. Teachers that are confronted by kids in the classroom need to get a backbone and not just ignore it. Fall out from Cocopah down the road comes here because they ARE addressing bullying and will not tolerate it. Administration does do something about problems that come to their attention. Kudos to the changes."
