    "I am a Wallenberg graduate and I think Wallenberg is a good school. If you were to send your child to Wallenberg, s/he will come out just fine. The class offering isn t the largest often due to budget issues. Most students that stay for all 4 years are in it for the grade. It s pretty easy to do well, but for those who do not do well, lack of effort plays a big role. But the real gem here is the ability to form and/or join any kind of clubs one wants and the ability to join almost any sports one wants as well (as well as multiple sports in one season). If you want to get into true school politics, students can run for the Student Site Council and/or run as the Student Advisory Council. SSC and SAC positions have the most power to make true changes. It is not difficult to participate; anyone can actually join the meetings. Self-initiated is the most concept one must understand in order to have a great experience at Wallenberg. They should challenge themselves by taking on ridiculous task like managing a library and becoming the project leader for yearbook. Admittedly, most students and faculty at Wallenberg tend to hate the administration. I partly blame the education politics."

    "This school has a lot to offer. It's up to the student and parents to make things happen. There are lots to do. We got music (they always had it...band), computer, art, languages just like the other schools. We have all the sports, just not football. We've got clubs galore. Want drama, cooking, sewing, photograpy, glee, BSU, Latino, Muslim, Asian, string club, pholospy, ecology, science, health pathways, so much more. New renovations, beautiful clean new campus, and it's a breath of fresh air. We are also climbing the charts of the API score and have done better then most other SFUSD high schools. Tours on Tuesdays. Come make an appointment and check us out!"

    "This school was the last choice for my child and now he is stuck there. i am really trying to move him to a charter or other high school that can offer more creative outlets. why doesn't this high school have music or drama classes? they offer some idiotic yoga class now but no music. last year at least there was choir and a play for kids. now nothing- even after school has no clubs for creativity. i would never choose to send a student to this dull place. and by the way the principal is very uninformed and a really rude person."

    "I was so impressed at last nights Meritus dinner. As a new parent to Wallenberg I m very excited for my son to be involved in a school with so many resources and helpful dedicated teachers. It was a powerful experience for my son and I to hear the personal account of a student who was struggling, in and out of foster care, low GPA, had no motivation for school until the Meritus Program offered him a chance and opportunity to turn his life around. They followed this student through high school, tracking his academics and making sure he rose his GPA above a 2.5 now this student is enrolled at SFSU working for a degree in Biology all paid for and sponsored by Meritus. I want the Best for my Son and I believe he will succeed and Shine like a STAR in his next 4 years of high school."

    "I highly recommend and invite you to visit our school and get involved with the school governance. The reason being is so that you can get to know the awesome staff, teachers, parents and students. You should see for yourself the different types of resources and organizations that the school has to offer. Look at the positive and leave the negative at home. Come help/tutor our students help them rise academically. Give teachers strength and support so they can continue working hard with more passion and dedication than ever before. I invite the parents to come see for your selves the activities, events, and meetings the school has to offer. Get involved with your child s education. Everyone working towards these goals together we will reach a successful school year."
