Yes but It wouldn't be the same as being in the same classroom, listening the same lessons from the same teacher, taking the same exams, collaborating, exchanging notes, feeling the same fear, breathing the same air. And yes there will be feelings too. Love, hate, jealousy, disappointment, excitement etc. Interacting with the opposite gender at an early age is an advantage to learn how to cope with these feelings while you are still not effected with all the negative effects of grown-up life.

I shall not like to homogenise but at a personal level, I do feel that single sex schools are better in some way. Being a subject to certain instances I lost my confidence but now at least I can raise my hand and speak freely as I know that i would not be surrounded by those whom I fear, for some time at least. But this seems to be a short term solution because I shall not be here for all times to come. Someday I will have to enter the "real" world and it might be more difficult for me then.

i agree
but as pro i could tackle that argument by saying that the students of single sex school still can have interactions with opposite gender after school(their neighborhood, family, relatives, community, etc). so their social life will develop anyway.

I have never seen reserved backing this theory, so if anyone could provide some I would be interested.

Regardless, I would like to note that even if single sex schools achieved higher marks, they would do a poorer job of preparing students for a world that is not segregated by gender. Without the social interaction between people, it would likely stunt social development and would potentially foster sexism as there would be no exposure to people of the opposite sex to learn tolerance from.
