What parents are saying: "I could not agree more that SCDS is doing an amazing job on all fronts. My child enjoys going to school, likes the curriculum and the faculty and has made a number of new friends... all good! Thank you for all you and the faculty and staff at SCDS do day in and day out."

The Scottsdale Country Day School staff have been carefully selected to represent a plethora of educations, experiences, and unique skills to ensure each of our students are afforded a rounded education. Staff at the SCDS charter goes above and beyond when it comes down to helping each individual student be successful and will often be found after school working with students individually or in small groups.

Open communication is imperative for each child to be successful and our staff encourages parents to be involved with their child to optimize learning opportunities.

Charlene Ivancich

Hello, my name is Charlene Ivancich and I am very excited to be a part of the Scottsdale Country Day School community!

I grew up in Orange County, California and moved to Arizona in 2018. I graduated from Azusa Pacific University in 2016 and I am currently working on my Masters degree in Elementary Education at Arizona State University.

I love spending time outdoors hiking, camping, and backpacking with my husband and two dogs. It is my dream to visit every national park. I love to visit California and spend time at Disneyland and the beach. I have a passion for teaching and making a difference in the lives of all my students! I have taught 2nd and 3rd grade and am excited to continue teaching in 3rd grade this year. As your teacher I will create an environment of learning, community, and exploration.
