ADD / ADHD board

Have an eleven year old boy with appearingly severe ADD Inattentive type. He's very bright on tests but can't make his way out of a closet with homework, books, assignmetns etc. Have tried Concerta, Ritalin, and Adderall. School (gourmet academic boy's school who doesn't believe in ADD) is ready to ask him to leave if he can't get it together. What should we try next when these stimulants aren't working. He's in and out and in and out from one moment to the next. He loves this school: sports, friends, even the subjects. It seems so unfair to him and me. Self-esteem in the toilet. Now on zoloft.
