My DD is considering applying to some all-girl schools, but she is somewhat reluctant because she wants to have some exposure to friendships with boys.
Back in “the old days” when I went to an all-girl school, boys were bussed in occasionally for a dance here or there, but honestly a random few hours together in an overdecorated cafeteria with a DJ did not readily develop any kind of friendship for anyone that I can recall.
Online I saw that MPS and Avon Old Farms do theater productions and other events together, and are in close proximity.
I’d love to hear from students or parents with experience at girl schools – are there opportunities ever to get to know any boys? Any girl schools that have an unofficial “brother school?”
Also, would love to hear about any schools where this did not work well. I want to go into this idea of applying to girls schools with open eyes.
