There’s a new private secondary school for boys that will open its doors for grades 6-9 in Sept. 2016, adding through grade 12 by 2019. The school’s two founders are experienced educators from Harvard-Westlake. Jennifer Dohr is a mom at Archer School For Girls and Harvard-Westlake. Oona Miller Hanson is a mom at Archer and Carpenter Community Charter public school.
We wish them success with this exciting endeavor!–Christina

Interesting. Christina, do you know what the research says about all-boys schools vs mixed gender in terms of who it would suit & why? I’m somewhat familiar with the research done for all-girls schools, but I’d be curious to know your thoughts. Thanks for the head’s up on this!
It sounds interesting, doesn’t it? A friend of mine just told me she knows one of the founders. I saw on Beacon’s website that they mentioned some research about the benefits of all-boys schools. –Christina
