Female students outperform male students in a range of indicators of academic performance. For instance, female students earn higher grades than male students. The female advantage in grades is particularly pronounced for languages and seems to increase with students’ age.
Female high school students earn higher grades than their male peers. The gender gap is particularly large in English, but female students also earn higher grades in math, social science, and science courses. The overall or composite scores of male and female students are quite similar.
Girls tend to mature a little faster than boys, developing language skills sooner and giving them the edge over boys in reading, writing, and speech. While boys are lagging behind girls on writing assignments, they are often ahead in math and science.
Evidence shows that educators need to have gender awareness to be open to girls’ and boys’ choices in learning and development, help children explore who they are, as well as gain self-confidence, well-being, peer acceptance, and social support.
