Too many unknowns.
What shape is the schoolyard?
Does it extend beyond the side walls of the school?
Can't see what the left corner has to do with anything.
There's a whole circle of points that are 12m from the front base of the right wall.
Draw a diagram, label all corners of the school, label Suzie's positions, so we can fix them in our mind.
Then come on back. Who knows, the systematic labeling of the diagram may show how it can be solved...
