We Do Things Differently

Coral Community Charter School offers single-gender classes with curriculum and teaching style that is tailored the to the unique needs of boys and girls. Providing gender-separate classrooms creates an opportunity that does not exist in the coed classroom.

Educators know that both boys and girls have individual strengths and needs. There are differences, in general, within the sexes developmentally, physiologically, and how they learn. Our program addresses these differences without ignoring the diversity among them.

We Provide

» Personal Education Plans for each student
» Test taking strategies
» Opportunities for collaborative work
» Celebration of assessments and results
» Math instruction with real world connections
» Hands-on activities
» Academic competition and rapid-fire responses
» Structured social and emotional learning activities each day

Our Results

» 100% of students work toward their own social, emotional, and academic goals
» Students report being prepared for life beyond Coral

For Girls

At every age, girls in girl-only classrooms are more likely to explore "non-traditional" subjects such as computer science, physics, and precursors to physical sciences. Studies suggest that learning in a girls-only environment show improved signs of self-confidence, engagement and ambition compared to their coed peers. They also report having more confidence in mathematics and computer abilities and are more likely to engage in political discussion, keep current with political affairs, and see college as a stepping stone to graduate school.

WE ALLOW

  • Numerous opportunities for communication and connection
  • Work teams chosen by the teacher
  • Sufficient wait time for verbal responses
  • Use of colored pencils, pens and highlighters

For Boys

In an all-boys’ class a teacher can better differentiate lessons to custom tailor their learning and instruction. Boys tend to be more engaged in all-boy classrooms where teachers use strategies that are aligned with the learning styles of many boys - more movement, timed-activities, and quick paced. This is extremely important because the number of boys disengaging from school is on the rise.

WE ALLOW

  • Conflict resolution
  • Academic development at an individual pace
  • Eating and drinking as needed
  • Lessons with movement
