I think Wallenberg is really great! It's staff and teachers are all very nice and aways willing to help you. There is also a lot of diversity which comes from all of it's different cultures and ethnicities. I really enjoy the happy vibe too. The classrooms all have natural light and everyone always seems to be in a good mood. The school population is pretty small too, so there is smaller class sizes. This is nice because it's easier to build relationships with teachers and receive aid from teachers and staff. I believe Wallenberg is an awesome school to go to.

I loved the staff here, and after recently getting a new principal things have just skyrocketed. Classes are interesting and talking to staff and teachers is easy smooth. Our principal is out and about quite often, talking to students and always smiling (not to mention he dresses well!)
Some things I would change would be nothing. The school is small, wonderful, and awesome to be in!
Gooooo Bulldogs!
Wallenberg High School is an okay school. The worst problem at this school is that the teachers keep leaving. Most teachers leave because of the housing situation in San Francisco. Wallenberg has given me many good friends. Most teachers are really good while others don't really care about their work. I would like to see more attention towards smaller clubs and sports. Wallenberg is a pretty average school with a loss of teachers and is the smallest high school in the city. If possible, they should raise more money to improve the school environment and to raise the teacher's pay.
