General School Mission

"The Scottsdale School is a Christian non-denominational school. Our foundation is Christ centered as we have both staff and families who share the same desire to share God's unconditional love. We look for a personal walk with The Lord Jesus Christ as we nurture, guide, train, teach, and confront always in a loving spirit, while focused on the individual needs of the children and families.
