Why won't they listen to me

So DS is 6 and just started grade 1. He has been through all the testing and is ADHD combined...no LDs, no comorbids, but did test in the gifted range (but nothing is done about that until grade 4).
He is on meds. We are just upping our dose of biphentin to 25mg from 20mg. We tried concerta 18mg and didn't see any change. When we went to 27mg he was extremely agitated and out of control. Biphentin tends to not spark emotional outbursts.
Here's my problem.....
I have been working soooo hard with the school giving them suggestions, telling them what works at home, etc. They listen to absolutely nothing. They are trying to get DS to conform like "normal" kids and they don't get that that isn't going to happen.
My pediatrician is livid and will fight the school on my behalf until they start working with DS. At least the ped is on my side.
What do you do when the school won't listen and just goes out of their way to agitate your son (short of moving away).
Any ideas/advice is welcome.
PS...DS has an IEP and it's current. They just don't seem to get it.
Tracy....still smiling :o)
