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.

I love to play golf whenever I get the chance and have been lucky enough to have achieved a hole in one! I also enjoy traveling and so far have visited 23 different countries so far. My favorite destination however is here in the good old USA, Kauai!
