Scottsdale's public schools make our City a standout place to live and learn. Here are the ABC's, starting with A for acronym — theirs is SUSD. B is for the basics. Here's a table of SUSD K-12 schools from North to South. C is for the Scottsdale Unified School District Calendar.
I've made the details easy to find the best schools and choices for your star student! Read on to find everything you need to know, plus more handy tables.
SUSD is billed as ‘Arizona's most excelling school district!' Here's proof:
The district boasts nationally ranked high schools, with a 93% graduation rate, 6 A+ Schools of Excellence, and 89 national board-certified teachers. Excelling students include Flinn, Dorrance, and National Merit Scholars, as well as U.S. military academy appointees.
SUSD's Learning Communities, School Search Tool and Boundaries
Scottsdale Unified School District is split into Learning Communities. These are based on the 5 area high schools: Desert Mountain, Chaparral, Saguaro, Coronado, and Arcadia. Here's the SUSD District Map.
Extra credit: Students in far North Scottsdale might go to Cactus Shadows High School in the Cave Creek School District.
Here's a table and search tool to locate your student's Learning Community and neighborhood elementary schools.
Note that SUSD's district boundaries don’t align exactly with the city’s geographic boundaries. For instance, some of SUSD's Arcadia Learning District schools are actually located in Phoenix, not Scottsdale.
