In this study, we investigate the effects of single-sex schooling on students’ mental health and identify the sources of their heterogeneous effects. In particular, we focus on two potential sources of heterogeneous effect: peer relationships and academic performance. We use student panel data surveyed in Seoul, Korea from 2010 to 2018, where students are randomly assigned to high school. We find positive effects of single-sex schooling on academic performance and peer relationships for both genders, with a greater effect on females. However, it does not lead to improvements in mental health, as measured by life satisfaction or enjoyment, and even worse for females. We find that female students negatively affected their mental health when face with a fiercely competitive same-sex environment.
