Working with ADHD Students

“ADHD is not a curse, it’s a blessing. Growing up with it taught me to prioritize and follow through with the most important tasks at hand. I now have more energy than most, while being able to put it to great use.”

ADHD High School in San Mateo

Compass High has created a supportive yet academically challenging environment where a child with ADHD can thrive. Through the hiring of accomplished Master’s level and Special Education credentialed teachers, dynamic counselors and learning specialists, and the development of a comprehensive curriculum, we’ve designed our school with student success in mind.

At Compass High School, we understand students need different stimulus to stay focused. We give your child the small class sizes, support and structure he/she will need to reach their full academic potential.

How We Work With ADHD

Despite being energetic, optimistic and curious, children with ADHD may struggle with focus and hyperactivity. This is why our curriculum and daily schedules offer multi-sensory teaching techniques, reduced transitions, behavioral strategies and built in breaks. We offer extracurricular activities, physical education classes, and after school clubs that help our students cope with their ADHD.

For more information on our curriculum or to schedule a tour, don’t hesitate to contact us.

We are a Comprehensive High School

We also work with students that have the following learning differences:

  • Creative and bright dyslexic students
  • Motivated individuals with other writing, reading, verbal, or mathematical difficulties
  • Students interested in pursuing further education or development

If you are not sure if our school works with the learning differences of your child, don’t hesitate to contact us to ask.
