Named in honor of the renowned Swedish diplomat Raoul Wallenberg, the high school was established in 1981 as an alternative high school within the San Francisco Unified School District. Emphasis is on academic preparation, acceptance of time-honored American traditions, adherence to a dress code, and ultimate matriculation.
Enrollment is open to all students in San Francisco. Requirements are a desire to pursue the offered college preparatory program, a willingness to put forth maximum effort and to adhere to the school’s philosophy, expressed in a commitment statement signed by parents or guardians and the student.
Wallenberg opened in the fall of 1981 with 9th and 10th grade students. An additional class was added each year and Wallenberg became a four-year high school in the fall of 1983. School enrollment is approximately 700 students.
Wallenberg High School's first class president was sophomore Dean Kondo.
