ABSTRACT
The article presents a survey on the ability level of girls-school students in the U.S. schools. The survey, sponsored by the National Coalition of Girls' Schools, found that girls-school students of all ability levels scored on a par with coeducational-school students on practically all of the achievement and advanced placement examinations. Ability levels were gauged by students' performance on the math portion of the Scholastic Aptitude Test. Ann S. Pollina, the dean of the faculty at the all-girls Westover School in Connecticut attributed the performance of students from all-girls schools to collaborative teaching techniques, small-group settings, and use of examples based on girls' life experiences.
