Scottsdale Unified School District opens the doors of its 30 schools each year to resident and non-resident students alike. The application process for non-resident students seeking to enroll in SUSD for the 2023-24 school year began online Tuesday, Nov. 1.
Referred to as “open enrollment,” Arizona law permits students to attend the school of their choice, regardless of district boundaries, a press release stated. Open enrollment can also be used by in-district students who wish to attend a school other than the one to which they are assigned geographically based on where they live.
“Scottsdale Unified welcomes all families in search of a challenging and rewarding academic experience for their students,” Scott Menzel, SUSD superintendent, said in the release. “Our 30 schools provide such a breadth of outstanding opportunities for all learners — whether you’re learning your ABCs in kindergarten or pursuing college credits in high school, whether you take half of your classes each school day in Mandarin or Spanish, or whether you’re just learning English for the first time. SUSD does it all well, and with heart.”
The K‒12 SUSD open enrollment application for the 2023-24 school year goes live at www.susd.org/open. Applicants’ families will learn on Dec. 1 whether their application has been accepted and what additional steps they must take next in order to complete the enrollment process.
In its 126th year of serving Scottsdale-area students, SUSD prepares students for post-secondary education, as well as careers that can be pursued right after graduation and jobs that may not even exist today. Offering rigorous courses of study and exceptional fine arts, athletics and extracurricular programs, SUSD produces students who are well-rounded, thoughtful and engaged in their community, according to the release.
“There are many more types of schools and learning opportunities available today than there were in the past,” Menzel said. “But I’d put an SUSD education up against anyone, any day.”
