child works well at home but not at school

My son works well for me at home, daycare, and church.  He can spell anything you give to him. He can sound out words easily.  He completes worksheets at home in seconds.  I am a teacher and I can obtain all the worksheets he has beforehand.  We complete them at home easily.  When  he brings them home from school they are totally incorrect.  All of them-most of them are wrong and his writing is horrific.  I don't know what to think.  The pediatrician suspects ADHD??That doesnt sound like ADHD to me-what do you think?

my child has this problem too! I had this same thing last year we went as high up the ladder as the superintendant.I just want to cry at times. we are now in the fourth grade.

So what did you all do? Did it get better?  I have worked my way up to the school board members.  I'm not sure if it is something that the teacher is doing or if it is my son-I'm at a loss
