Single sex schools are a great for both guys and girls. Girls and guys can now raise their hands more confidently and not be worried about being made fun of. For the guys, there is less distraction and less drama. There is no girlfriend non-sense because they don't go to the school.

Con

Co-ed schools offer an expansion of social opportunities. With both male and female, people have the chance to talk and get to know and put themselves out there with the opposite sex.

It has been proven that girls and guys have different learning needs. At same sex schools you are able to gear the needs to the specific gender. Girls like discussion based lessons and collaborative learning, where boys like group work and dominating discussions.

Con

At co-ed schools, males and females will have a chance to develop with different styles of learning. Even though a specific learning style is preferred, co-ed schools can expand the opportunity of learning in a new way, which could later be beneficial for your future.

Pro

At single sex schools enable girls and guys to be free and learn about anything they want to discover. This leads girls to develop an interest in male dominated subjects such as science. It can push boys to want to become nurses or explore the fine arts.
Cammartinn

Con

Just because females and males can acquire different interests in same sex does not mean that they can not obtain those same interests in co-ed schools as well. Interests are based on who you are as a person, it does not matter if you are with your same gender or different ones.
