Concerns about Arizona’s poor overall national reputation for education?  When it comes to Scottsdale, they are unfounded.  Check out the latest 5 year review of SAT / ACT test results (for individual schools as well as the district averages) as compared to state and national averages.  The Scottsdale Unified School District absolutely annihilates both with regularity.

To keep up with the rapidly expanding population of Scottsdale, new schools and major renovations to existing facilities have come on line in recent years. Three of the longer tenured high schools, Saguaro, Chaparral and Arcadia are not long removed from the throes of massive overhaul.   To keep pace with some of the newer facilities in the district, and to match the combined performance of the faculty and student bodies,  each school was virtually reconstructed from the ground up.   Please visit each school through the individual links provided above to view additional project scheduling, curriculum, events calendar, mission statements, etc.
