The All-Girl Advantage:
Girls' schools are places where independent thinking is valued, and where girls are empowered and excited to be in school. At girls' schools:
- Girls enjoy not just equal opportunity, but every opportunity. All the speakers, players, writers, singers, athletes, and leaders are girls.
- Girls are prepared to take on the world. In a survey of 4,200 girls' school graduates, more than 80% reported that they were better prepared to succeed in the co-ed world precisely because they went to a girls' school, where every student is encouraged to develop her talents, be a leader, set goals, and achieve them.
- Learning takes center stage without social distraction. Girls tend to focus more on learning and are more likely to display their intelligence in a single-sex school.
- There is no gender stereotyping in course choices. Girls' school students are more likely to study math, science, and technology.
- All-girl schools create a positive environment to counteract the negative media pressure they confront each day.
- Instruction is tailored to the way that girls learn. Girls learn differently than boys do, at different rates and different times developmentally.
- Girls' schools create more opportunities for leadership inside and outside the classroom.
