Over the years in different forums, there have been many debates in regards to what is best - single gender versus coeducational environments. Data from many various sources clearly shows that girls achieve significantly better results in an all-girls' setting.
Recently, the dialogue of how students best learn is once again being discussed in the media. This is a welcome debate as it gives us the opportunity to express why we value and believe in all-girls education.
At Kildare College, we are a proud girls' school, which truly understands the benefits of providing an education that enhances confidence, resilience and success. Research shows that single-gender girls' schools achieve stronger academic results than any other group in Australia. At Kildare, we are genuinely committed to an all-girls' learning environment where students are encouraged to take intellectual risks and develop skills and knowledge that enhances their self-esteem, which in turn helps them grow into confident young women.
Below are some of the benefits of an all-girls' environment that have been identified by the Alliance of Girls' Schools Australasia:
