School Reviews

  • Recommended December 05, 2010 - PLEASE READ THIS REVIEW AND TAKE IT TO HEART. The quality of learning is greatly disapointing to where the teachers try but often fail in truley teaching their students or even getting them to pay attention. As a student who strives to learn I find that I am refrasing what the teacher is saying so that I can teach myself, that is a sad realization for a young adolescent and makes school seem obsolete. The facilities of Mojave high school are disgusting, appalling is not strong enough of a word. The walls of their bathrooms are filthy and the tiles are often broken, most of the bathroom stalls will not shut, the toilet seats are carved into. I have been their for two years now and there was no progress in correcting this situation. The level of parent involvement is a disgrace a parent can know as much about their child at Mojave as a child accross the country, A child could not even go to mojave and most of their teachers will say they where their. An example I was home sick and only my 4th. period teacher said I was absent, The teacher has to say I was there or I was absent so five people thaught I was in their class, I can't help but feel despondence when I or any other student is treated like a number or an excuse to get extra money from the state, as saying i was there when my parents know i was not. There is no way i would condemn any child to a school such as Mojave High School, not to mention all the armed police not makeing me feel any safer from the students oh so willing to wound or kill others. - Posted by Student/Alumni
