dc.description.abstract The Seattle Girls’ School is unique in its mission statement specifically directing the school to empower its students. In exploring the success of this single-sex middle school, the author places the school within the wider context of single-sex education, gender bias, and female adolescent development. Data analysis from interviews conducted with students and staff reveals a remarkably transformative environment, in terms of both formal and informal school structures. There is a clear and direct transference of empowerment from the school’s mission statement to the students. The author calls for an in-depth longitudinal study of these students. en
