    "I don't think Principal Fong raised the bars for Ulloa's education. The school is not too bad, nor is it too good. What makes the school great are some of the teachers and students themselves. By the same token, what makes an ivy league university great is the students, not so much about the professors. Yes, we don't go to a school purely because the Peincipal is nice, but as a leader, that person can pass on negative energy around. You have to see in person how nasty Carol Fong acts behind the door, e.g., yelling and slamming door loudly."

    "Having had two children accepted at Ulloa was the BEST choice I have made so far in this crazy SFUSD system. If a parent wants a touchy feely adminstrator, then by all means ask for a transfer, and GET OUT if you really think you child is at RISK! I would not hesitate to remove my child from a BAD enviroment. My kids had great educators, they did not really see or spend time with the principal. However, Principal Fong knew their names. As for asking for more money, Thank your lucky stars your not at most of the other schools, they have asked for $500. or more for years. So, if your biggest complaint is about the principal that has raised the bar at this school with mulitple educational needs over the last 15 years, then obviously, your ranting is not about your child's education."

    "I agreed that the Principle is the worst. She yelled everyone everywhere in the school."

    "Principal Carol Fong needs to be more passionate and professional at her job. Her bipolar personality ruins a positive, nurturing environment. Being fed up by her negativity and power hunger, the front clerks also acted rude most of the times. Teachers in Ulloa work under a leader who is aggressive, & always wants to get thing in her way. No one dares to challenge her in any way (earlier review). If there is any slight behavior issue, she may overreact & suspend the students for a day without trying other useful options. This school leadership just wants to impose responsibilities & pressure onto parents & every issue is due to lack of parenting . If there is any dispute, she would yell loudly & has to win the argument every time. What makes Ulloa great is the students, not the principal. Most teachers are fine, but Carol Fong s negative leadership ruins the teachers compassion. If Carol Fong works for a private company, she would have been fired long time ago. I encourage parent to file complaint to SFUSD for unfair treatment. Although they tend to dwell on the trivia and evade the importance, if more people are voicing their concerns, they have to treat it seriously one day!"

    "Ulloa elementary has some great teachers. I do agree that the principal needs to be more compassionate with the teachers and parents. If a student do not fall into a behavior which is acceptable then the parents are scolded as if they were bad parents instead of the school finding a way to work with them. And I have heard the same complaints often when the principal does not even know the entire story or listen to the teachers who know more about the personality and behavior of the child. The parents work with the child at home but the school should be working with e child when they are in school when this is their job and what these professionals educate themselves for this type of career! Being a principal should be the leader into providing a compassionate environment and caring for kids instead of having the parents feel like it is their job and the school does not work with the child or parents for a nurturing and caring experience. This school has some very good teachers but the principal can be a better leader! Everything starts from the top and she is lucky that it has not trickled down to having bad teachers so far! I hope she does think about why she wanted this career!"
