You raise a number of important points in your comments.
The first is that we have no absolute method of diagnosing AD/HD and we rely on comparing behaviours of a number of similarly aged children. It is particularly relevant that your son may demonstrate concentration and behavioural issues because he is bored, and we should not jump to conclusions regarding diagnoses. It is however also noted that those kids with AD/HD are often very intelligent - so the one condition does not necessarily preclude the other. In order to piece the 2 apart it is important to consult with an expert that deals with this regularly.
I am not qualified to make educational suggestions for you but I would caution you that skipping grades often creates unexpected problems in respect of emotional maturity etc.
My suggestion is that you seek the guidance of an educational psychologist that can make reasoned arguments and suggestions after meeting and assessing your son. They are best equiped to suggest extra mural activities that would challenge and stimulate your son.
