Subject: Is this a learning disability?

I have an 11 yr old boy who is very bright. Middle school has exaggerated all of his issues though and I am not sure what to do about it. He has never been diagnosed ADD and I don't believe he is but he has HUGE issues with organizational skills, performing a list of tasks verbally (he gets distracted easily - send him up to clean his room and after about 10 minutes starts doing other things), does homework because we make him but then cannot find it to hand it in, never seems to have what he needs (pencils, books,etc) got horrible grades so far when I KNOW his potential is higher. I get tired of people saying that it is a boy thing and he will grow out of it - it is only getting worse and more exaggerated as the school years go on. Does he have problem?
