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.

Jessica Phillips

Hi! My name is Jessica Phillips and I am SO EXCITED to continue teaching third grade at Scottsdale Country Day School! This year will be filled with fun and adventurous learning inspired by your child's natural curiosity.

I grew up in Massillon, Ohio which is very close to Cleveland (Go Cavs!). I moved to Scottsdale in 2010 while I was pregnant with my son, Gabriel. During my free time, I enjoy camping and traveling as much as possible. I have seen most of the U.S., as well as London and various parts of France. I'm a huge nerd for music. I play the guitar and I love going to concerts!

I have a Master's degree in Special Education from Arizona State University with a dual certification in Elementary Education. I was lucky enough to have completed my student teaching at SCDS, as well as teach third grade at SCDS last year.

In my classroom I believe that each child has a voice. Each child has a unique learning style. My goal is to create an awesome environment which fosters a love of learning in every student.

Thanks for reading! I can't wait to meet all of you!
