It was pretty bad when I was there (graduate in 2017). I had several teachers that I loved who were bullied by students and the principals did nothing about it. They left. Some students get away with horrible things all the time, bullying is constant, and the new principal would literally sit around at a desk near the front door and hang out with kids all day. I'm not sure all schools are like this? I'm glad I graduated.

It is OK I guess, but if your child transfers there from a non SFUSD school be sure you meet with their counselor each and every term to be sure their transfer credits are counted correctly. Our son transferred from Riordan at the beginning of junior year. The counselor that year, working with us, was able to figure out the transfer credits. The counselor assigned to him Senior year was not. As a result he was not allowed to participate in graduation. We only found out about the error when he appeared for summer school. No apology or acknowledgement from the counselor. Our son will never have a proper high school graduation. because of this.
