The Scottsdale school system is a good school system. If you want specifics for each schools, I would suggest that you go to their website. I believe I have some of that information on my website, http://www.karenweston.com or go direct to the school website. Just google Scottsdale Schools and you will get lots of info and test scores, etc. Then maybe you can find or your buyer can find which school will fit the best for them. If I an helpl, please let me know.

I don't understand the question, are you asking or asking on behalf of your clients? No licensed Realtor is allowed to answer such a question, all we can do is suggest that a client read the Buyer's Advisory and view sites that may rank such things. I would suggest that you and or any client interested to Google a School, and not to an agent or Realtor for such advice, which we are not allowed to give.

My clients are directed to http://www.greatschools.org to get the school rankings. I would examine what programs or needs your clients need for their children and use this site as the tool to identify what schools to prioritize and then make calls to the administration at the school. Also, there are some great moms clubs in the Scottsdale area so depending on the age of the children this source (Google Scottsdale Moms Club) is great to get solid advice on what schools parents are prioritizing and why. It's really important to make a good school choice based on the needs of the kids and goals of the family for education so parents should seek these sources and then from there know what neighborhoods they want to find their home in when relocating.
All my best

Some of the elementary schools in North Scottsdale are in the Paradise Valley School District so you might want to check out these three schools as well if North Scottsdale is of interest. Sonoran Sky, Grayhawk and Pinnacle Peak Elementary. These are all excelling schools as well. Grayhawk and Pinnacle Peak teach kids using the Core Knowledge Curriculum which has gotten rave reviews.

Hi Sharon, like most things in life "best" is in the eyes of the beholder. What I think is "best" because was a great experience for my kids might not be best for someone else. In addition, as real estate agents in Arizona we are not allowed to tell you what we think is best because they consider that steering. What we can do is provide resources that will allow you and/or your client to do their own research so they can determine what is best for them. Someone else mentioned going to the Scottsdale Unified website http://www.susd.org and getting a list of the schools so that you can see where they are located and the types of programs they offer. Another site to look at is http://www.greatschools.org. Good luck and let us know if we can help.
