Gender Classes

Gender Education at AMS

In past years, Abbotsford Middle School has offerred Gender Education classes in one Grade 8 pod. However, this year we are unable to run this program due to an imbalance in our numbers of male and female students.  However, we still strive to honor the research conducted by Michael Gurian, Leonard Sax, and others show that boys and girls learn differently.  

Please see the following links for more information, or contact Mr. Penner at the school.
