    "All parents with special education children should avoid this school. The principal lacks the leadership to properly assist the special education staff. The general education teachers are also equally unmotivated by the lack of leadership. The teacher moral is so low that the annual teacher turnover rate over 30%. The special education department is inexperienced and is capable of doing more harm than good. Students that are enrolled in special ed inclusion with diploma are now being informed that all of their school work has been modified since being first enrolled (without prior parent notification or parent authorization) and they re now disqualified from graduating with a high school diploma. Some students are being informed of this after attending the school for years. I regret ever enrolling my kid in this school."

    "Wallenberg has a very good counseling department and conscientious, accessible teachers. The campus and student body is smaller than other neighborhood high schools, but this allows your student to stand out. The school s community service requirement is a great tool for teaching kids to reach out in their communities. Kids are able to enroll in the classes that they need and are showcased well. Their acceptance rate to good colleges is high. We have not encountered any incidences of bullying. The school is located in a good neighborhood, halls are immaculate, classrooms are well lit and conducive to learning. No, the school does not have a football team, but unless your kid has his heart set on playing football, who cares? Overall, very pleased."

    "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."
