We were all having a discussion about this last night as DH and I are sending DH to an all boys school and BIL said kids that go to same sex schools are socially awkward ( thanks BIL i went to all girls school for 12 years!) what are all your thoughts/experiences/opinions ? Where did you send your kids and do you recommend it?

Same sex or co-ed schools?

I disagree with your BIL. I went to a same sex school and I loved it. Although, I've heard that girls really thrive in same sex, whereas it's not so good for boys. I don't have any hard facts on that one though. I am considering sending DS to one.

Co-ed for us at a P-12 private school however if that school was to not extend to Year 12 she would have been there until Year 7 then to a s ame sex school for years 8 to 12.

Generally girls do better in single sex schools and boys do better in co-ed.
I did better in co-ed though, so it is really dependent on the individual child.

I went to a girls' school and I'm not socially awkward! We had a brother school that we used to do lots of co-curricular activities with so IMO it doesn't make a difference, just less distractions during class IYKWIM LOL!

We want to send DS to the all boys school cause it's a great school, but I am now a tiny bit worried? DH went to co-ed and said he spent most of high school life chasing girls and thinks all boys will be fine, as he us there to get an education not socialize? I'm thinking that with all his female cousins he will have heaps of contact with girls so he should be fine???

We are doing a bit of both.
Kindergarten to Year 6: co-ed
Then Year 7 to 10: Girls
Then Year 11 & 12: co-ed
Personally, I think I would prefer High School to just be the Girls campus all the way through but it doesn't work that way. I think they call it a multi campus school. There is co-ed, Girls and Boys and then they all go to the Senior Campus. But I have heard the Senior Campus is very good.
