As a teacher (at a public school) we put a lot of thought into our school choice. There are a lot of great options in the area, but this felt like the best fit for our family. No school is perfect, but in our 4 years here we've been very pleased.
We've had a great experience at St. Susanna. Our children are challenged and have had great, supportive teachers. Like any community, you get out of it what you put into it. By making the decision to involve ourselves in the community, we've made many great new friends. Very happy to have this school option in Mason.
My kids were miserable at this school! There is a real problem with bullying and no one does anything about it. The parents are just as cliquish as the students and not very welcoming to new families. Save your money. The local public school districts are just as good, better in some subjects actually, and your kids will have more choices and opportunities in both academics and extra-curriculars.
Very disappointed with this school. The curriculum is no better than the neighboring public schools. In fact, one of my children, who had been an honor roll student at this school, was a little behind when we switched to public school. Bullying is a big problem that is just ignored. Very homogenous student body and the parents like and want to keep it that way. Huge waste of money.
St. Susanna Catholic School focuses on forming a child spiritually, as well as academically. The school atmosphere is friendly and family-like. The staff is dedicated to a child's growth and development. I cannot say enough great things about St. Susanna. My child has thrived in this warm environment. Parent involvement is highly encouraged & expected. Various activities are available including Spanish, music, art, Young Rembrandts, and Mad Science. We have found the academic programs to exceed our expectations in every area.
