Why an all-girls school?

At an all-girls school, I don’t have to worry about so many things at once. Instead of flirting, touching up on lip gloss, and passing notes to guys during class, I can just concentrate. Girls at co-ed schools have so much more to deal with; I can just relax and actually understand what I am learning.
At an all-girls school, no one expects the boys to be better than you. None of the boys are surprised when you get a better grade than they do or are appalled when the teacher likes your paper more, because those boys don’t exist. The teachers all believe that girls are capable of learning and making a difference, or else they wouldn’t be here.
