The enormous expectations, changes and pressures of adolescence make it a confusing time for boys to be growing up. At Rostrevor, we help boys find their place in society and answer "what does it mean to be a boy in today's world?" It can be a time of great self-consciousness and a boy's self esteem can benefit when he is not feeling continually compared to others but is allowed to be himself and be accepted for who he is.
In an all boys' environment, students tend to have fewer concerns around body image. There is a freedom that comes with that lack of comparison that they seem to enjoy. Interestingly, research shows that both boys and girls will ask more questions in a single-gender setting as they are typically less self-conscious about how they are perceived by their peers.
