Gender-based classes seem to be effective at Lyman Hall Elementary
Lyman Hall Elementary teacher Danielle Carver works with fifth-grader Cristian Lopez on his math assignments Monday afternoon during class. The all-boys class is part of the gender-based classrooms the school has been using for the past two years.
Fifth-graders Brandon Murillo and Emilio Ochoa prefer not having girls around while they learn in class. Their teachers at Lyman Hall Elementary School said they aren’t the only students who enjoy and seem to benefit from not having the other gender in class. For the last two years, the fifth-grade teachers at Lyman Hall have been experimenting with gender-based classes.
