    Girls school

    It is a long tradition that the Irmengard school is an all-girls school. Many people think that it´s certainly boring to go to a school that only girls go to, but that´s not the way it is! It has some advantages to go to a girls school:

    At girls schools, the girls have to take on all responsible tasks themselves and also take on boy roles: they organize events from the classes and student representatives, give speeches and also supervise the technology at theater performances. This strengthens the self-confidence.   

    In mixed schools, it is often the case that girls avoid science courses and mathematics because of gender-distant interests.
