    I have a child with ADHD. He loves school and learning. He is at or above grade level in the academic areas. However, I think that he would benefit from a small class size and teachers with experience with ADHD, especially as the academic demands increase. I am looking for suggestions for private schools that work with students with ADHD to help them achieve their potential.

    ADDitude offers some guidance on making this decision:

    Should Your Child Transfer to an ADHD-Friendly School?

    as well as a list of ADHD schools in the US:

    Jill- Thanks for posting the topic. Whar grade is he in?

    Penny-
    Is there a similar guide for prep schools for a gap year or colleges. My son is a Junior and was diagnosed last summer and is thriving! His school is so helpful. Now we need a good ACT score but the right college is a really big deal!

    Thanks!
