At a girls'
school, a girl occupies every role, every leadership position, every part in
the play, every seat on the student government, and every spot on the
basketball team. She has a wealth of avenues for self-exploration and
development and a school full of peer role models.
In a single-gender school, a girl can comprehend her value and her capabilities in ways that have nothing to do with how she looks or whom she dates. Not only is she not in a bubble, she's utterly free to do anything and everything she wants. She can experiment and explore, trying out new things and trying on new identities.
