Another Scottsdale school you might want to consider is Basis, located near 136th St and Via Linda. Scottsdale Basis was recently ranked #3 in country by Newsweek.

The agents here have given you a lot of great information! Check out the websites provided for school rankings and parent reviews.

We live in he Desert Mountain HS district, but decided to send our son to Saguaro HS (he is a Sophmore this year) for numerous reasons, which I would be happy to share with you.

One of the big pluses for Saguaro is that it has one of the best science programs in the the state, which could be a be benefit if your student is leaning towards a career in the health care field.

Scottsdale Unified School District has an open enrollment policy (based on availability) that means that you do not have to live within a certain district to send your child to that school. That expands your house search options! You can contact the school district for more information on this option. Thanks!

Hi Anelisse,

It was a pleasure speaking with you the other day.
Most of the Scottsdale schools are very good depending on your child's special needs.
My son went to Desert Mountain High School and attended the IB program which is excellent, and it's for honer students. Arcadia High School is know to be one of the top best and some parents like Chaparral High School.
You should do your own research and find out which one suites your child best.

Let me know if there is anything else I can help you with.

Best of luck,

Well I graduated from Saguaro and now I sell homes:) There are some really great schools. What are you into? SPORTS, ACADEMIC, ETC. This is not a simple question. There are many questions that need to be asked. Saguaro is great. Arcadia is nice, chaparral is good and so are the others. Feel free to call me or shoot me a email. I have a ton of information about the schools.

My husband and I relocated to Scottsdale when our kids were in 7th grade and a sophomore in High School. We choose Desert Mountain H.S. and were very happy with the school. Desert Mountain is the only school in the Scottsdale district to have the IB program.

I would suggest you review the schools on the Scottsdale School district site and see what school seems to fit best with you kids interests.

If you need additional help I am happy to help you.

I pulled up these two websites for you to review. Saguaro has been a great school for many years and I know many people that move into that district so that their kids can go there. In the PV District, Horizon is a great High School you may want to review as well. It has a great repuation as well and many parents specifically move into that area as well.

If you need help with real estate I would be happy to assist as I know the Saguaro and Horizon areas very well.……

For what it's worth. Both my kids went to Saquaro. Great school, great teachers, and athletics not to mention the advanced honors classes.
