Research-Backed Facts About Single Sex Schools
Things You Might Not Know
Here are five research-backed points you might not know about single-sex education.
In a single-sex school, curriculum is less likely to become gender-stereotyped as it does in co-educational settings.
Girls tend to learn better when classroom temperature is warm, while boys perform better in cooler classrooms. If that’s true, then the temperature in a single-sex classroom could be set to optimize the learning of either gender.
Faculty at single-sex schools are trained to understand how their students learn. They adapt teaching styles and employ instructional techniques geared towards boys or girls.
At certain ages, mixed-gender classrooms can become a social distraction for students.
Many single-sex schools integrate social emotional learning (SEL) and character development into curriculum to help rewrite gender roles and strengthen emotional intelligence.
