Vgleibowitz -

The school options in Scottsdale are excellent, including public, private and charter schools. I would be happy to discuss specific school options for your family as part of your home search process. As a native of Scottsdale with children in Scottsdale area schools, I am very familiar with the options available to you. Please contact me at you convenience to discuss.

Hi vgleibowitz,
The good news is that you have a lot of quality options in this area. Public schools of Scottsdale are considered great, then you have the Charters that specialize in a certain curriculum (like Montessori) but are still funded by the state, and lastly you have private schools with high tuition but options for scholarships. You also have a good chance of getting into the school you want...no endless waiting lists.
Mission Montessori is a charter school with 4 campuses in Scottsdale. It offers affordable quality education as an alternative to mainstream. Redfield is considered the flagship school of the Scottsdale Unified School District. They have programs for gifted children and offer lots of extras like technology and music.
From my own experience the best thing to do is talk to other Moms, not look up ratings on websites..... I'll be glad to chat and answer questions anytime 480-236-6069

Notre Dame Prep is a private school where families pay tuition. Scottsdale Prep is a charter school that is free to families like public education. In both schools studens wear uniforms and are afforded a challenging curriculum. Scottsdale Prep is a classical school and requires Latin in grades 6-8.

The schools in this area are some of the best in Arizona. Scottsdale is served by 3 public school districts Paradise Valley, Scottsdale and Cave Creek. This particular home is served by the Paradise Valley School District, It is important to know that we have "open enrollment" in most schools here. That means that even if you do not live withing the district boundaries your student can still attend a school in another district. Add to that the private and charter school options and you should have no trouble finding the right school for your student.

You can find detailed school information at my website.

Charter schools are great and can provide a lot of structure and an aggressive curriculum.

You may enjoy the http://www.greatschools.org website to search school "grade" reports. While top rated schools are important for property values it is also important to place your children where they will excel and as a mother of 3 who have been through Pinnacle High School (one still there) its important to know what your child needs and whether the school serves that need and your expecations as a parent. take the top ranked and then call the administration to answer questions and provide a tour of the school.

The top-rated high schools in the Scottsdale/Northeast Phoenix area are, in order according to U.S. News and World Report:
-- Pinnacle High School, which serves northeast Phoenix and north Scottsdale
-- Cactus Shadows High School, which serves the town of Cave Creek (north of Scottsdale)
-- Chaparral High School, which serves north central Scottsdale (and is my own alma mater)

Notre Dame Prep and Scottsdale Prep also serve the northeast Valley but are not public schools.
