Placing your child in a single-gender school may backfire. While it has been around for quite some time in private schools, it is now becoming a preferred option even in public schools. Males are usually more on physical activities while females prefer more interaction with their peers. And although some countries still prefer single gender classrooms, the percentage of mixed-gender schools has increased. They can be themselves in classrooms and can speak out openly and honestly.
They might not know how to handle the opposite sex and may experience something akin to a culture shock when they go out into the world on their own.
There are assertive kids who might intimidate other students in single gender classroom environments. The Pros and Cons Are single sex schools better than co-educational schools? Behaviors such as showing off, talking to girls in the classroom or passing notes to girls during classroom time will be eliminated if there are no girls to show off for or to talk to while the teacher is trying to teach the class.
