Many parents question whether they want their children to study in single sex or Co-ed schools. Some say that it is best if children will be in co-ed schools because it will foster natural living and they will learn to interact with children of the opposite sex.

Here are some of the studies that is research based with regards to the advantages and disadvantages in a single vs. Co ed schools.

A four year study at Cambridge University by Dr. Leonard Sax found that single sex classroom format was effective in boosting the performance of boys in English, Art, Drama and foreign languages as well as girls performance in Advanced Math, Physics, Computer and Science. Source:

A study in England in July 2002 by the National Foundation of Educational Research found that students academic ability for both boys and girls did significantly better in single sex schools than co ed especially for kindergarten and elementary schools because they are not expected to do the traditional thing.

A six year study in in Australian Council for Educational Research in 2000 revealed that "boys and girls in single-sex schools were more likely to be better behaved and to find learning more enjoyable and the curriculum more relevant." The report concludes: "Evidence suggests that coeducational settings are limited by their capacity to accommodate the large differences in cognitive, social and development growth rates of boys and girls.

The advantages in studying in single sex schools for both girls and boys are first it helps expand their educational opportunity. They learned to explore “non traditional” subjects. Second, they have a custom tailored learning instruction unlike in co ed education wherein the process of gender intensification is so strong that for instance girls who liked physics is a weirdo with single sex school, they have freedom to express self and pursue their interest. Third, they are more autonomous.
