Creating school communities in which all students can learn, NO EXCEPTIONS!
In the relentless pursuit of school communities in which all students can learn, no exceptions, Mohave Valley Elementary School District holds the following core values:
The Mohave Valley School District covers a large and diverse population and geographical area. Part of western Mohave County, the district serves the unincorporated areas of Fort Mojave and Mohave Valley. The northern end of the district supports many small and medium sized businesses that are an outgrowth of Bullhead City to the north. The southern end of the district is comprised mostly of small businesses and agricultural areas. Sprinkled throughout is the Fort Mojave Indian Reservation.
The area was initially inhabited by the Mojave Indians. They called themselves the Pipa Aha Macav (“the people by the river”). The first white men to discover the area were Spanish explorers who heard the name pronounced as “Mo-HAH-vey,” and spelled the name “Mojave.” The desert area, the county, and the valley are all spelled Mohave; The Indian tribe and the area of Fort Mojave both use the original Spanish spelling ofMojave.
Beginning in the 2015-16 school year, schools were "grade-banded" into a Primary School, Intermediate School, and Junior High. Comprised of Camp Mohave Elementary (serving students in grades 3-5), Fort Mojave Elementary (serving students in grades PK-2), and Mohave Valley Junior High (serving students in grades 6-8), the Mohave Valley School District serves 1,100 students, preschool through eighth grade. High school students move into the Colorado River Union High School District, where they finish their high school careers. Students have access to a wide variety of services and activities, including a variety of special education services, after-school extra-curricular and intramural sports programs, and access to updated technology in every classroom on all three campuses.
We are very pleased with the number of opportunities we offer our students:
Additionally, the area offers many activities for outdoor enthusiasts, including hiking, camping, fishing, skiing swimming, and boating. For the gaming and entertainment enthusiasts, the casinos of Laughlin, Nevada are 20 minutes away. Although the summers can be harsh, often exceeding temperatures of 115 degrees, the winters are mild and attract enough winter visitors to double the area’s population.
