Question: Freshman son unfocused and disruptive

My son is a 14 yr old Freshman at a Visual/Performing Arts high school. Some of his classes are 3 hours long and he has trouble staying on task and becomes disruptive, saying he's bored. I am concerned about his attitude and his goofing off. Am I expecting too much or could there be a problem?
