The Scottsdale School District has a great reputation and there are several excellent private schools in the area. I would strongly recommend the areas that attend Chaparral HS, Desert Mtn HS and Arcadia HS. There are many outstanding communities in each of these attendance boundaries. As a Scottsdale native who attended Scottsdale schools and have children that attended Scottsdale schools (both public and private), I would be happy to assist you with your school and home searches. Please contact me at 602-828-1589 to discuss.

REALTORs are not allowed to tell their clients what areas are "good neighborhoods." It is illegal for us to do. I do understand your question and would be glad to discuss your wants and needs further. Please feel free to call me at 480-220-4037. Thanks - Joon Bang
I have a new home going to the MLS soon. It is in DC Ranch and it is gated with community park in walking distance, great mountain views, nicely upgraded, 3 car garage, move in ready. I can email some photos if you'd like to see pre MLS. It is a very nice neighborhood, community pool and workout facility, hiking and biking paths where people state they love the schools, shopping and fine dining.

Congratulations on your decision to relocate to Scottsdale. I have been living here for almost 20 year and loving it, my child attended all 3 levels of schools. As mentioned already, depending on your school choice of grades there are many good public as well as private schools. There are many to choose from, you may also want to check out charter schools like, Basis Charter School 5-12 at: http://www.basisscottsdale.org and Rancho Solano Private Schools new Ventura Campus 6th - 12th opening this fall. Once you choose the school and the age of your home, then the rest will be easier.
I have been helping many buyers to relocate to Scottsdale.

"Good" is difficult to answer. Prices tell you what some people deem as good. Homes sourth of Indian School were mainly built in the 50s and 60s. Homes from Indian School to Shea were mainly built in the 70s and north of Shea in the 80s. Many north of Cactus were built in the 90s.
Scottsdale has a wonderful quality to it, is well zoned and has great parks (McDowell Mountain Preserve) and bike, hiking paths every where. Excellent schools and arts districts (downtown) and newer hip areas like Kierland and Scottsdale Quarter. Mountain areas like Troon and McDowell Mountain Ranch are other considerations.
Scottsdale is a long narrow (north to south) city with different characteristics urban, horse properties, golf course properties, mountain properties, townhouses, planned communities (McCormick Ranch and Scottsdale Ranch and Gainey Ranch as examples). What type of home are you looking for?

You will find many nice areas and good schools in Scottsdale. It would also depend upon your price range as well. Be sure to call and check with a school that you are interested in to be sure they are accepting new students. Also, talking with the principle and teachers is a good way to see if the school is a good fit.
