Australian high schools are divided into boys` schools, girls` schools and common mixed schools. Which type of school to choose for their children is a headache for many parents. Some parents may worry about whether single-sex schools will isolate their children from the opposite sex.

Is this the case? Study abroad Yi net for you to answer in detail.

Schools of single sex are generally schools with a hundred years of history in foreign countries, public secondary schools are mixed schools, private schools can be mixed schools, can also be single sex male schools or girls` schools. In fact, boys` schools or girls` schools do not want to isolate children from the opposite sex, but to teach according to the general characteristics of men or women, so as to better plan students` study plans. For example, boys` attention will be focused in many different places, especially in class, attention is easy to shift, so boys` school teachers will intentionally walk back and forth in the classroom to attract the attention of boys; For example, girls are more sensitive during adolescence, like groups, chat with their relationship good friends to chat about things, therefore, teachers in getting along with girls, need to play a good listening role, pay attention to the subtle changes of girls.

Teachers in boys`or girls` schools need to be trained specifically to educate students of a single sex. In addition, boys` and girls` schools in the same community usually form pairs of schools, with some courses mixing boys and girls, or organizing extracurricular activities to involve boys and girls.

In addition to the differences in teaching methods, in terms of curriculum design: boys` schools will offer courses that pay more attention to the development of male leaders, such as improving boys` teamwork ability in a variety of outdoor team activities, which are very important experiences for boys` career and life development in the future. In addition, boys` schools invest all their money in learning sports suitable for boys, such as equestrian, hockey, kayaking, rugby, etc., according to the local weather and geographical conditions. Girls` schools will focus on cultivating students` lady temperament, in addition to professional cultural courses, will also offer cooking, handmade, nutrition, table etiquette and other courses, so that students can master more domestic and social skills; Out of the classroom, the school will also hold regular afternoon tea parties, princess parties, traditional dances and other activities to infiltrate "lady teaching" into every link of students` lives and cultivate students` lady temperament.

Mixed schools, generally referred to boys and girls are enrolled in the middle school. Mixed schools advocate diversified teaching, the main courses are suitable for boys and girls to carry out together, basically take the cultural curriculum as the core, and offer all kinds of courses such as painting, music, physical education and so on for students to choose, cultivate students` morality, wisdom and physique in an all-round way. Students can also learn from heterosexual students the excellent quality of others, better improve the personality of students.


What exactly is a good school?

A school visit organized by the Australian Trade Commission may give parents some reference. The Australian Trade Commission has visited 28 secondary schools in Perth, Western Australia, Hobart, Tasmania, Adelaide, South Australia, and Canberra, the capital. All the schools visited have good or even dazzling academic performance, but it is interesting that when the principals or teachers who receive them introduce their schools and students, they are more proud that they help students find their own interests and specialties, fully explore their potential and find the direction of development.

They took us enthusiastically to see the students` art exhibitions, musical instrument playing, drama rehearsal, carpentry production, sports training and so on, and the students` learning achievements were amazing.

Remember visiting a school in Perth, the reception teacher said that students here must learn at least one musical instrument, they believe that learning music can help improve math performance; many schools require students to learn musical instruments or participate in sports, so that their physical and mental development can be balanced.

Therefore, the study abroad Yi net believes: "the best school" is the most suitable for their own school. When choosing a school, we should not only consider whether it is a boys` school or a girls` school or a mixed school. The idea of running a school, campus environment, teachers, courses, facilities, culture, surrounding communities and so on need to be considered comprehensively.
