Same Gender Program

The only program of its kind in Prince William County Public Schools, the Same Gender Program offers students the opportunity to be enrolled in same gender teams, which have gender specific classes for their core academics. The same gender teachers differentiate the delivery of their instruction and utilize a variety of gender-specific learning strategies based on researched brain differences between the genders. The WMS staff is passionate about Same Gender education. Boys and girls are equally capable of learning in all subject areas, but for some students, the best environment is one in which gender differences can be addressed. Every student learns differently, and the Same Gender model allows us to maximize current educational best practices and differentiate instruction.

Note: Applications for this program are open for rising 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students.
