I got the best education way back in the 80's. Now I am a teacher.

I take exception to the parent who felt that South Pointe was a better school. I would suggest she transfer her child back to that school. I found the Suzanne teachers excellent, the school scores the best in the district, and the principal ws very approachable. A child may have a problem adjusting, but that isn't the fault of the school. There is waiting list at Suzanne. That tells me something.

The children at this school are very misbehaved. The principal at this school has no control over anything. The academics at this school are also bad compared to other middle schools in the district. The campus looks like a jail. The classrooms are so small and they are portables. Both of my sons went here and lets just say we had too many problems at the school. Kids bullied and teachers were mean towards the students. I REGRET PUTTING MY SONS HERE. I wish I would've put them in south pointe. DONT PUT YOUR CHILD HERE, IT WILL BE A HUGE MISTAKE. In 5th grade my son had 3 best friends. They went with him to 6th grade, but then they changed just to become popular. They turned into bad kids and didn't want to be friends with my son anymore.

We had to go through the three years at Suzanne and then to Walnut High to appreciate a difference. Teachers and the principal Mr Ojeda in Suzanne are great! Majority of them do care about their students. Maybe 2-3 rotten ones, but it's OK. Any conflicts were resolved. Mr Ojeda was very accessible and friendly. Years at Walnut High were completely opposite.. I hope our school has more Mr Ojedas and fewer Jordans!

Suzanne Middle School's test scores compared to similar schools are in the top ten in the State. The mix of old and new teachers is excellent. The administration is supportive. Lots of activities. There are two California State Teachers of the Year here and one National Teacher of the Year. My daughter was on a waiting list to get in while there was room at the other schools. That says it all.

The teachers are so nice and they actually take their time to sit down and talk to the students if they dont get anything or when they have problem inside of school or outside problems. They also plan really cool activitys such as noon time activity and other manner lessons such as the BLUE AND WHITE Tea. They also include days such as Greek Festivals and Renassaince Fair. They support dances to help raise money and fun activities. The school organizes perfect timing for passing periods and class period even when its a Early Out day or something like that. The noon aids watch carfully for cutting students and those kids who need help if they droped their lunch or if some kid was making fun of them. They only problem is that the school is too small and the rooms aren't big

Suzanne Middle School is truly amazing. The students do their homeworks everyday and there aren't any fights for vandalism. The only negative thing is that the administration is horrible. The principal is very amateurish and doesn't know what he's doing most of the time. The teachers, however, are fantastic. They've been teaching there for several years and they know how to help and relate to the students. All the special events and activities that take place during the school year are all organized by the amazing teachers. They are like one huge family and they are so great together, all 60 of them.

I went to Suzanne and had some of the best years of my life at this fine establishment. At Suzanne I have made some of my best friends. The only thing bad about suzanne is that the new administration isnt what it used to be. But it is still way better than South Pointe. The faculty is one of the best and most of the teachers love to see old students and are always happy to strike up a converstation with them and you can actually talk to them as if you werent a student. Ms Nativadad and Mrs. Pop are the best. Suzanne also has honored Teachers such as Mr. Haskvitz who is the teaching hall of fame, and Mrs. Pop and Mr. Mac who are state teachers of the year. So send your kid to Suzanne and see how much they enjoy the atmoshpere

Suzanne Middle School is absolutely one of the best schools I've ever sent my child to. The classes are fantastic and the teachers are more than teachers at that school. Mainly, the school is all about the teachers. The teachers on that campus have fantastic chemistry, humor, and appreciation. They are also very experienced.

I am a student at Suzanne and I love it! Most of the teachers there have been working at the school for over 10 years. Some of the teachers even attended Suzanne when they were 12, 13 and 14. They can totally relate to us teenagers.

New administration isn't up to par as the old one was. It seems they have a revolving door when it comes to adminstration and they have a tendency to hire inexperienced, out of state faculty as well. I would have considered on transferring my son to south pointe m.s. after the new administration arrived but he only had one year to go untill he went to the high school accross the street.

My kids graduated from this school. The teachers were very supportive of my son when he started to slip off academically. He ended up taking college subjects at CSULA while in 7th grade and now majoring in mol. bio. at UCSD. Thanks, teachers, especially Mrs. Green.
