As a high school student, I do not believe that children learn better in same sex schools. In same sex schools were do not get to socialize with the opposite gender, this does not prepare you for the real world. Although their can be distractions in the classroom, with both boys and girls, I think it is better to attend a school with the opposite gender. It allows you be able to feel more comfortable when socializing with the opposite gender. When you graduate high school and head to college, you are not going to be able to avoid speaking with the opposite sex. It is good to learn this at a young age. In a coed school, their are more different opinions in the classroom. This provides for a more interesting class discussion. Also, researchers believe that female students motivate unmotivated males. The amount of money you have to pay to attend a same sex school is ridiculous. You do not get what your money is worth. Why would you spend that much money to go to high school? In my opinion I would save it for college and my future.

Scientifically people that go to single sex schools are better behaved, have more confidence and that they do better in exams as there is as much distraction. For the girls, they feel more comfortable during P.E. As it isn't as rough as it usually is with boys. Boys don't play sports as well as they usually do when they are playing with girls because they have to go soft for most girls and girls don't take part in as much when playing with the boys.
