Why a Single-Gender Education?

Countless studies, including a national-level study by Harvard University, concluded that single- gender education is a proven advantage for girls. The study found that young women attending an all-female high school show greater educational and personal gains than young men and women in co-educational schools. The findings of the study indicate that young women  in all-female high schools:

  • Set higher educational goals;
  • Perceive themselves as being in control of their own choices;
  • Hold more positive attitudes about school;
  • Achieve at significantly higher levels in reading and science;
  • Overcome traditional gender stereotypes;
  • Have fewer absences and discipline problems;
  • Do more homework and watch less television
