Bayhill High School serves students with learning differences who are entering grades 9 – 12. Eligible students have an average to above average intelligence, yet struggle to excel in a traditional classroom or school setting due to a learning difference or a need for a small, personalized setting. Bayhill accepts students who can benefit from our unique approach to teaching students who thrive when given personalized instruction in a supportive environment.
