Orinda Academy or Bentley for teen with ADHD
We are considering both Orinda Academy and Bentley for our son. He is very intelligent, sweet, and a super hard-worker. He has ADHD and this makes homework take twice as long as it would for the average kid. He also struggles with his organizational skills and executive functioning skills. He does well academically in a middle school with very little homework, but we are concerned about the increased demands/complexity of high school.
OA seems like it would be great for him, wondering if it would be academically challenging enough? It seems like the students are doing their individual work, not sure if that means they might not be challenged enough by the teachers or fellow students?
Bentley seems to also offer the small class sizes and academic challenge, but I’m wondering how much they can accommodate learning differences and ADHD and whether they work explicitly on organizational skills and executive functioning.
Also wondering about whether drugs/delinquency a problem at either school? How is the social scene?
Any advice appreciated !
