Discover This School

Located in the heart of San Francisco, Wallenberg offers a rigorous educational program that prepares our diverse students for success in college, careers, and life. We provide students with a supportive, safe and caring small school environment that emphasizes academics, athletics, the arts, and student involvement in clubs and extracurricular activities. We offer AP courses in all core subjects. Students are challenged and inspired by a dedicated and talented faculty and staff.
Founded in 1981 in honor of the renowned Swedish diplomat Raoul Wallenberg, the school thrives on the values of personal responsibility, compassion, caring, honesty, perseverance, and integrity. We are committed to ensuring that our students have equitable educational outcomes and to enhancing each student's creativity, self-discipline, and the opportunity to grow and shine as responsible citizens. Our small school fosters close student-staff relationships. We get to know each student's strengths and weaknesses and are able to reinforce student academic and social growth. We have structures in place to promote high achievement, including diagnostic counseling, preparation for college enrollment and communication among disciplines.
Ongoing interaction, assessment, and feedback ensure that all students have the opportunity to discover the joy of learning and reach high achievement for their own goals. Parents are always welcome at Wallenberg and are encouraged to become involved in the school. Our culture of service and support, and our relationships with students, families, and communities are among the keys to our school's success, and a source of pride and strength for all Wallenberg students.
