We will argue in our points to see who have more information about single-sex school pros and cons.

Round 1
Pro
Positives can be found in every type of education, but there are just so many more positives for girls in a single-sex school. If mixed environments produce better student outcomes, why are so many schools introducing single-sex classes or parallel education in order to improve academic results, especially in English for boys, and math and science subjects for girls? Why are bullying rates of girls and boys so much higher in mixed schools? And what are mixed schools doing about the endemic gender bias and sexual harassment girls so often experience in their care? Research shows that girls thrive in a single-sex school environment. There is simply no doubt that single-sex education benefits girls. Research shows unequivocally that girls thrive in an all-girls environment – they do better academically, socially and emotionally. Not just a single study but more data from across the world supports these findings. Research aside, you only need to visit a girls’ school to see the difference. Girls in mixed schools tend to be more self-conscious and less confident. They are less likely to speak up in class, ask questions or take on a leadership role. They are also more likely to have a negative body image and to experience sexual harassment or bullying.

More Bullying;If you're in girls' or boys' schools, being only around girls or boys can lead to more bullying among groups in some cases. In many situations, same sex schools, especially in the girls’ sections, there tends to be more cattiness and petty unnecessary drama, which in many cases escalates into bullying.
Round 2
Pro
Well as Talal’s point was about that girls tend to do more drama,which escalates to bullying between same genders groups, But don't you thinkthat girls tend to do an unnecessary drama in mixed schools especially withboys. Maybe the opposite that boy tend to do unnecessary drama with girls and Ihave never seen that drama escalate to bullying. Boys bully mostly girls inCo-ed because of how they look or how they dress or how they do there make-up.I am not saying that there is no bullying in single-sex schools but it is muchless then co-ed schools.

As Faisal said Positives can be found in every type of education, no it is not in every type of education, but there are just so many more positives for girls in a single-sex school, and also Faisal said If mixed environments produce better student outcomes I completely disagree it doesn't produce better students outcomes, in my opinion single-sex schools is not the right choice.
