Is it possible to have a child who does well in school diagnosed with ADD or ADHD?

Does anyone have a child who was diagnosed with ADD or ADHD but their child never had any problems in school only at home?

My son is diagnosed with ADHD and ODD and we rarely have issues with school we do help him with homework as his meds are wearing off after school and he needs reminding to get back to work. My son is a B student used to be an A student but has gotten a little lazy as he has hit his pre teens. We do pay for good grades on his report card though so he works towards whatever goal we put forward. I have had teachers tell me that there is no way he could have these problems but the meds really work for him so yes a child with ADHD can do very well in school if you have the right strategy set up for them.
