Mojave High School, opened in 1997. After a year of sharing a campus at Cheyenne High School on a "double session" schedule where Cheyenne students attended from 6 am to 12 pm and Mojave students attended 1 pm to 7 pm (while Mojave was under construction), the inaugural class, class of 2000, were the only class to not have an upper-class. The school began with only the Freshman class, who became the first graduating class in 2000. It is a nine-month public High School that is part of Clark County School District located in North Las Vegas, Nevada. As of late 2011, It is proclaimed to be one of the low-active schools by having at least 1,000 students removed to other schools since 2010 due to bullying and violence, dropouts and vandalism. The graduation rate is relatively low.


Mojave High School offers many different athletic teams including football, baseball, soccer, swimming, tennis, golf, cross-country, wrestling, basketball, bowling, cheerleading, dance, and volleyball. They compete in the Sunset 3A Region of the Nevada Interscholastic Activities Association.
