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.
Bayhill saved our lives. My son has learning differences and ADD. He was falling falling falling in his private middle school. In 8th grade he went to Raskob Learning Institute and from there to Bayhill. He found connection at both schools with kids who were just like him. He’s now 21, working full time and going to school at night;. He’s still good friends with a few of his Bayhill buddies. – Bayhill Parent
