The Mohave County Schools Administration Building in Kingman, we boasts one of Arizona’s few officially-certified
Montessori schools, and Mohave Community College now offers 4-year degree programs via NAU

Mohave County has 15 public school districts that include 52 public schools and 25,000 students. As one of the largest counties geographically in the US at 14,000 square miles, the schools are principally sequestered in our 3 largest cities, Kingman, the County seat, Lake Havasu City, and our Bullhead City/Mohave Valley/Ft. Mohave area. One School in Mohave County Services a Native American reservation.

  • Six districts encompass the service area of Valley View Medical Center and our presentation features schools from these districts. The high school sizes range from 1A to 5A.

Public high schools in VVMC's service area: Mohave High (in Bullhead City) is 4A, and River Valley High School, in Mohave Valley, is approximately 500 students smaller and 3A (both featured below). The largest high school in the County is in Kingman, a 5A high school.

  • Both Mohave High and River Valley High School offer approximately 20 AP classes, as well as dual-enrollment courses which allow students to earn college credit prior to graduation (classes offered at MCC and at school).

Other School Options in our area include: K-8 Young Scholars Academy which is featured here, plus our renowned Montessori School.

Education Leaders:

"Our student achievement is clearly better than the California public schools, from which many families are moving to Mohave County. Kids who move here are generally a half to one year behind us." – Superintendent File
"My youngest son currently attends a local high school and is taking his first evening course at the college. Thanks to a well-developed series of dual enrollment courses offered at local high schools, both boys will have obtained the first two years of their college education at almost no cost to our family." – Dean Bristle

your children will get a well-rounded education here.” – Mike Leuk
“Along with schools you can be proud to send your children, our area is simply a great place to live – there are lots of things for kids to do and almost unlimited recreational fun. Come join us!” – Bud Scully
"When we relocated to this area, we planned on moving a little bit at a time over a period of a week or two. On Saturday many new friends arrived with pick-ups and the move was completed in one day." – David Berard

Recruiting a University to Lake Havasu City

A four year university is on the way to Lake Havasu City! This was President Obama giving the 2009 commencement speech at Arizona State University. Our dreams of bringing a major university to Mohave County are coming true after years of hard work by committed area leaders. We’re eyeing Arizona State or NAU. Learn about this incredible initiative and the massive effort that turned a dream into reality, with initiative founder Bill Ullery plus video with Gary Kellogg, CEO of the Partnership for Economic Development in Lake Havasu City.

If you aren’t familiar with the phenomenon in many areas, from real estate to our economy, plus education – for reasons relating to its state budget to affordability, many Californians are exiting their state into border states, including college students, and multiple studies suggest a college in our region will have plenty of students.
