It creates a very nice sisterhood environment and feels like family.

Imagine a school where every student in the jazz band is a girl. The captain of the flag football team is a girl. Girls win poetry contests and physics competitions. Girls are on stage and backstage.They lead the environmental club. They debate world issues and take on social causes with compassion.

Girls’ schools are places where girls take center stage. They occupy every seat in student government, every spot on the math team, and every position in the robotics club. In fact, every aspect of a girls’ school – from the classroom to the athletic field to the academic program – is designed for girls. By subtracting boys, an all-girls environment adds opportunities for girls.

  • Graduates of girls’ schools are six times more likely to consider majoring in math, science, and technology and three times more likely to consider engineering compared to girls who attended coed schools.
  • A US national survey found that nearly 87% of girls’ school students feel their voices—their opinions—are respected compared to 58% of girls at coed schools.
  • Graduates of girls’ school report higher self-confidence than co-educated peers related to science (understanding scientific concepts, explaining study results, or using technical science skills, for example)
  • Research has proven girls’ school graduates display stronger community involvement, greater cultural competency, and increased political engagement.
  • In comparison to their co-educated peers, young women who attend girls’ schools are more likely to be frequently active in volunteer work.
  • Over 90 percent of girls’ school graduates say they were “offered greater leadership opportunities than peers at coed schools.
