ABSTRACT
In realization of the differences that boys experience, learn, and behave differently in a classroom environment, more effective strategies should be implemented in efforts to provide a better educational structure for both sexes. The purpose of this study is to investigate the impact of single-sex secondary school environments in males' attitudes, achievements, and learning abilities versus coeducational classroom settings.
