Orinda Academy for shy ADHD boy?
Hi Fellow Parents,
My son is currently in 7th grade, has ADHD with auditory disorder and difficulty with long term memory. He is shy & a bit immature & doesn't engage in sports. He is currently in public school & succeeds in the resource classroom since it is 1:7 teacher/student ratio. But his other classrooms are too big and he can't remember the instructions and gets easily distracted with all the students. He also struggles with the common core instruction. I am looking for a small private middle or high school that has small class sizes but that is big enough to give him a high school experience and have a balance of preparing him to get admitted into a 4 year college. I have looked into schools that have LDs or kids with social delays and I am wondering if that is the right fit for him. I want him to have a variety of choices for friends but not too big that he feels lost. I am looking into Orinda Academy and I am wondering if anyone has any experience with the school and can provide feedback? Any other suggestions? Any school from Pleasanton up Hwy 680-Hwy 24 to Orinda would work.
Thank you for your help & feedback!
