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.

Matt Crawford

Hello, my name is Matthew Crawford. I have had a passion for music since I was a young child. I am lucky enough to share that passion by teaching various instruments, techniques, and theory with students at Scottsdale Country Day School. I have worked at specialized music schools and taught private instruction throughout the Valley. It has been a pleasure working with the kids at Scottsdale Country Day School and introducing them to different instruments such as ukulele, guitar, piano, and percussion. The SCDS community of staff, teachers, and parents are amazing and it really shows through the students. When I am not at SCDS, I enjoy playing with local bands and continuing my education in music.
