Bayhill High School serves students with academic difficulties who are entering the 9th, 10th, 11th or 12th grades*. Eligible students have an average to above average intelligence, whose processing of information makes it difficult for them to excel in a traditional classroom or school setting. Bayhill accepts students who can benefit from our alternative high school educational environment.
