  • I am a senior at Mojave highschool,and it isnt as "ghetto" as everyone says it is but it certainly isnt the greatest school in the world like one of the reveiws i just read and in my opinion Mojave is ghetto,the students are ignorant and the reasons students cant learn and we have a low graduation rate is because our school hires foreign teachers who cant speak one lick of english. You cant learn in the classroom because its so noisy and majority of the students are completely disrespectful and disregard any authority. Half of our teachers have no idea what theyre teaching. Theres only a couple of teachers who actually care.My first period teacher doesnt even take the time to learn our names he just gives us names. Before our principle won Principle of the year i saw her about 3 times and now shes around all the time like she cares about our school. Honestly, the students are ignorant,the teachers dont know how to do their jobs and i wouldnt recommend this school to anyone.

  • I disagree with all of these reviews, as a Senior at Mojave High School I can attest that this school is one of the best. The college level programs available to students are abundant and of high quality. Also, the technical and vocational courses (Auto Tech, 3d- animation and programming, etc.) are taught by experienced and knowledgable staff that are willing to help anyone to succeed. Another little known fact is that the Arts programs available are some of the best in state. The guitar program got a superior rating at festival two years running (and that was only intermediate guitar!) and has been invited to peform at many higher level competitions. The choral program is the best I've ever heard at the secondary level and the teachers are dedicated to allowing the developement of the students and are always willing to take the time to help individual students that are struggling or just want to advance themselves and get the edge. Of all the things I have heard about this school being "ghetto" I just don't see it. Of course every school has it's miscreants and Ne'er do wells but behind all of that are what really matters, the students who apply themselves and go beyond the call. Mojave is home to some of the most intelligent open minded people I have ever met. Even the best books can have a misshapen cover but you won't know it until you open it up and read it.

  • Due to the amount of students my son will not be able to attend two required classes for graduation during his Senior year. the Staff is pushing him off to an after school program at another school to get him his credits rather then using his time at this school to complete the courses

  • I disagree with the last review. My child has gone to Mojave for 3yrs. Will be a 11th grader this year. The deans and staff at Mojave are very intuned with the students. Most kids are rude, immature and ignorant, a lot of that have to do with home traning and parents teaching their kids to respect other so that they can be respectful. These are things that are taught at home, It starts at home so when the kids get out in the world they will know how to conduct themselves as young adults.

  • The School is horrible, all the kids there are rude, immature, ignorant, and non of them are respectful. I would urge parents to think twice about having their kids go there.
