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 disability 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.
Specific Learning Disability
Most Bayhill students have a specific learning disability. This means that the student does not achieve commensurate with his or her age and learning ability levels. In most cases, a significant discrepancy exists between academic achievement and intellectual abilities. Students with a specific learning disability may be diagnosed with one or more of the following:
- Auditory Processing Disorder
- Disorders of visual processing
- Language disorders
- Executive functioning difficulties
Other students may not have a learning disability, but require a small school with personalized instruction due to:
- Medical issues that may affect speed of processing or memory
- Mild Depression
Bayhill High School does not accept students with behavioral difficulties.
