Bayhill individualizes our rich high school curriculum to meet the needs of diverse learners. Whether a students has dyslexia, ADHD or another learning disability, we understand how each student learns best.
At Bayhill, students naturally receive more time to complete assignments, tests, and projects. Students can take tests in a quiet space or with a reader. Lessons are taught using auditory, visual, and hands-on modalities. We also help students discover which accommodations they need and encourage the development of self-advocacy skills.
All Bayhill students use their computer and Google Apps to complete, organize and submit most of their assignments. We provide our students with access to Bookshare and other digital/audio text formats. Our 21st Century Learning class teaches students how to leverage technology in academics. Students learn useful computer skills and tools that not only help them in high school, but also prepare them for college and the workplace.
For students who require it, we use effective research-based remedial interventions to improve reading, writing and math. Our reading teacher uses an Orton-Gillingham based approach to develop decoding and vocabulary. Other methods are used to develop rapid naming, fluency, word recognition, and spelling.
Bayhill’s Foundational Math class uses strategies to develop a strong foundation for students with dyscalculia and other difficulties with math concepts and facts.
We also have specialist in the area of speech & language and educational therapy to work with students with more persistent difficulties.
For students who have struggled in the past, it’s a relief when they finally feel that someone has their back. Our teachers build trusting relationships with their students based on mutual respect. Bayhill is a community of students and staff who work together to create a positive school culture. We stay connected with our students long past graduation.

“My son with ADHD is a sophomore (at Bayhill) and is thriving. Every kid brings a chromebook to school every day. All assignments are online and are turned in online, so no missing papers. There is an “Academic Support” period each day where a teacher checks in with each kid to look at their current homework status in the online system and see which assignments need to be completed or turned in, and then finish them in that class…He is taking all the classes he would have taken at BHS but now he’s making A’s and B’s and he loves Chemistry and Math! ” – Bayhill Mom
