And yes I'm another who has heard that girls do better in single sex schools and boys do better in co-ed. Doesn't quite work out though does it!

Single sex v co ed schools
I'd just add I studied law at university and i wouldn't have had a clue who had been to a private or a public school unless I asked. The students who had been to co-ed schools behaved just as badly in front of the opposite sex as the students who didn't. I can only speak from my experience but it had as much relevance as whether they were formula fed or not.

DSS would do well in a single sex school. DSD would not.
Neither would do any better at a private school, than a Catholic or public- they are just not that academically driven.
Most single sex tend to be private, so they get ruled out for that.
This bub might be different.
I went to a private co-ed primary, 7-10 private all girl high, 11-12 private co-ed high. I genuinely didn't notice a difference.
I still had friends of both sexes (you don't only meet people at school).
ETA: I also notice more of the silly "ooh look a boy" stuff in the co-ed school than the single sex ones.

DD goes to an all girls school, love it. I went to a girls only school, after being in a co-ed primary school. I was very happy in a girls only school. There was plenty of social interaction with boys, public transport to/from school, sporting events, dances, friends. The school organised events with the boys school up the road. But in the classroom no distractions.
I had absolutely no trouble interacting with boys/men at uni, and in post grad uni lived in a house with 3 boys.

I attended both co-ed and single sex high schools, co-ed in years 7 - 9, single sex from 10 - 12.
I struggled at co-ed, was picked on etc and absolutely thrived at a single sex school. I don't think I would have done nearly as well (emotionally and academically) if I had of stayed in a co-ed school.
I think it depends entirely on the individual.
