The Scottsdale Unified School District has 31 schools serving about 25,668 students. More than 3,862 persons are employed by the district, including about 1,551 teachers.
The district celebrated its 100th anniversary in 1996. Its boundaries include most, but not all, of the city of Scottsdale, almost all of the town of Paradise Valley, a section of the city of Phoenix and a section of the city of Tempe.
The Scottsdale Unified School District was founded in 1896 by Major Winfield Scott, also the founder of the city of Scottsdale. The first classes were taught by Aliza Bount, who, for health reasons, moved to Arizona from Illinois with her husband George and their three children. Classes were held in their adobe home, which was just south of what is now Civic Center Plaza and Second Street. Aliza Bount was paid $40 a month to teach the 8-10 students from the seven families who resided in Scottsdale at that time.
Today, the District covers 112 square miles. Our boundaries are not coterminous with city of Scottsdale boundaries. We serve most of the town of Paradise Valley and parts of Tempe and Phoenix in addition to most of Scottsdale. The District has about 25,668 students and 1,551 teachers. We have 5 comprehensive high schools, 1 online high school with Scottsdale Online Learning, 6 middle schools, 3 K-8 schools, 16 elementary schools and 3 Early Childhood campuses.
