Welcome Message from the Superintendent

Each year, we have 3,000,000 visitors come to the Bullhead City area to enjoy the Colorado River, Lake Mohave and Davis Dam, and other fun recreational activities in this “paradise in the desert”. The visitors are wonderful, but our permanent residents are the stars of Bullhead City, and we urge our local families to enroll in a CRUHSD high school to receive an outstanding education and to become involved in a variety of exceptional student clubs and organizations.

The Colorado River Union High School District includes Mohave High, River Valley High and CRUHSD Academy. These three terrific high schools are fully accredited by Cognia, the top national accrediting agency for high schools, and they have a combined enrollment of 1,700 students. Come join these students for a banner year in education at CRUHSD.

The voters made it possible for our students to hold many sporting and club activities at the Anderson Auto Group Fieldhouse on the Bullhead Parkway. Local, state and national entities also lease the Fieldhouse for functions that further their respective missions.

Student opportunities are abundant in our three high schools. With beautiful campuses as a background environment for learning, students may participate in college preparation programs, complete professional certification in select Career and Technical Education areas, and enroll in our Honors and Advanced Placement courses. Proudly, our Career and Technical Education programs have won many state and national awards. CRUHSD’s Fine Arts are also award-winning programs with strong choral, instrumental and theater arts emphases. 

Do you want to graduate with an Associate of Arts Degree from Mohave Community College or complete requirements for a professional certificate simultaneous with high school graduation? With the outstanding cooperation of MCC, students may obtain an Associate’s Degree by enrolling in our dual and concurrent courses or earn a professional certificate through our CTE curriculum.  

If you are a student who prefers online learning, you may enroll at the CRUHSD Academy on the River Valley Campus and learn at your own pace with great teachers and online support. Join the other 160 students at CRUHSD Academy for a tailored learning experience.

Click the “tax credit” button on our website to give up to $400 to a favorite club or organization to reduce your tax burden and help our students thrive. Thank you!

We welcome all of new students and returning students back to in-person classwork for the 2021-2022 academic year. Our instructional staff worked together to provide creative experiences for our students this past year, and those experiences will enhance our ability to provide a variety of educational strategies to assist our students this year.

It’s nice to return to the CRUHSD family, where I previously spent many happy years.  If you’re not already part of our family – as a student, parent, staff member or community stakeholder – I hope that you will be.

May the 2021-2022 school year be the best of the best!
