While Gothamist has some reservations about single-sex education, mostly in regards to the all-boys model, we are totally interested to find out how New York City's first public all-girls school works out. Opening its doors in September within P.S. 15 (on E. Fourth) Girls Prep is one of the 16 new charter schools starting up this year and is still accepting applications for a limited number of spots. Not only will the lucky girls who go to this school be getting a social and educational experience generally only found in private and parochial schools but they will also be getting more school than the average NYC student (classes will be from 8-3 and there will be 200 days of classes instead of the usual 180). Going to an all-girls school was one of the best things that ever happened to some of our best friends, so this should be an interesting experiment. And in case you were wondering, yes, uniforms will be required.
