EDUCATION SCOTTSDALE

Innovative Education is a Hallmark of Scottsdale Schools The greater Scottsdale area is home to 70+ public and private schools. Many of these schools offer specialized programs like International Language and language immersion classes, some starting as young as 3 years of age. The majority of SUSD elementary schools offer pre and post-school enrichment programs and “Homework Clubs” which are enjoyable for the kids and ease the daily childcare logistics for working parents. SUSD service area extends beyond City boundaries, to include most of Paradise Valley, part of Tempe and some areas of North Phoenix.

SCOTTSDALE UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT Celebrating its 100th anniversary in 1996, SUSD has a tradition of innovation that spans more than a century. Covering 112 square miles, its 30 schools – 5 comprehensive High Schools plus one certified on-line High School, Six Middle Schools, and 16 Elementary schools serve 25,600 students, with open enrollment that encourages families to seek the school which best suits their children’s needs.
