An all-girls' education lays the groundwork
The research is clear – girls learn better and achieve more in an all-girls' school. Students at all-girls’ schools are more involved in leadership roles, spend more time on schoolwork, and achieve higher test scores than girls at co-educational private and public schools. They also have higher self-esteem and a greater sense of self-worth that is founded on factors other than physical appearance. Those at all-girls' boarding schools report feeling more valued, having a higher satisfaction level, and receiving more attention than their co-educational school peers.
