All-girls school helps students focus on education

People have mixed ideas about an all-girls school, even if they haven't ever attended one. There's an old saying, never judge a book by its cover. Therefore, never judge a school by its name. The new incoming ladies of Detroit International Academy had doubts, at first, but have quickly learned that sometimes a lot of one thing can be a good thing.

After several weeks, what do new students think? Here’s what they said:

“It’s cool, but weird,” says sophomore Javion Willis, “because it’s all girls and I’m used to boys and girls.”

Freshman Arieana Gee-Smith said: “It’s straight and good, also kind of interesting. I never thought that being around all girls would be more educational.”

“It's OK," freshman Gabriele Montgomery said. "It feels like it’s a good thing. Maybe I can stay focused and not worry about boys.”

Sophomore Rochelle Ambrose says she’s found “a sisterhood here.”

"All girls, more focus, a better education for me," Willis said.
