Accreditation: Bayhill High School is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) and is a certified non-public school.
About Bayhill High School: Bayhill High School was founded as an independent high school that serves students in grades 9-12 with learning differences throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. The WASC-accredited, nonpublic certified school is the only one of its kind in the East Bay.
Mission: The mission of Bayhill High School is to educate students with language-based learning differences focusing on their individual learning needs, with the goal of maximizing their inherent abilities and their potential to achieve success. Bayhill High School has an individualized curriculum that addresses each student’s learning differences and needs and provides enrichment in their areas of strength and interest.
History: Bayhill was founded in February of 2006 by a group of educators and parents concerned about the need for a comprehensive high school in the East Bay for students with learning differences. Bayhill’s founding was a response to the closing of the high school program at Raskob Day school, one of the oldest programs for individuals with learning differences in the United States. Upon the closure of Raskob High School in June 2007, Bayhill provided continuity for students and faculty using research-based interventions similar to those developed by educational leaders at Raskob. Bayhill opened its doors to students in grades 9 and 10 in 2007. The full high school range was served in the 2008-2009 school year with the first graduating class celebrating their completion of high school in June 2009.
