My wife will be teaching at the same private school where our six-year-old son is a student. In fact, he will be one of her students. What can we do to better handle this situation?

Especially interested in others who have gone through the same sort of situation.
More details: My wife teaches art and will be teaching this to my six year old in 45 minute classes to a variety of ages and grades, but one of these classes, twice a week, will have my six-year-old. He is somewhat a distracted, hyper, attention-deficit child, but we have found with the right teacher he can sit still, participate and be a good student. However, there are definitely times at home in which he will try to manipulate us, push the boundaries, sometimes in trying to get out of homework. (Same as any child?) There are about twelve students to a class.
Is there something she needs to do to deal with possible conflicts with other students (concerns of favoritism)? What other problems will we run into? It's a Catholic school and the kids seem pretty disciplined.
