I don't know what grade you are and I've only taught younger kids(second grade and pre-k), but would giving him a job maybe help? Something "important" that he could be in charge of?
I agree with this. I've found it super helpful to give 'bossy' kids an area of special responsibility and then teach them to be a 'good' boss- kind, thoughtful etc. And then when they are bossing someone when it's not their job, I can say 'you are not the boss of the lego/playground/glue sticks' or whatever it is.

Bossiness is just the demonstration of immature leadership skills. I wanna nurture the leadership part!
