No, Swimmer. High schools need to remain co-ed. Part of becoming an adult means learning how to work with and communicate with ALL people, including people of the opposite gender. Kids can't learn how to do this if they are exposed only to a uni-sex world. Even parochial schools are co-ed, for this very reason, in fact.
Most of the "pressure" which kids put on each other to "fit in" is driven by forces outside of school, such as the local and national economies, for example, and by the social and political culture which exists in the larger communities. The kids aren't the ones who make the rules and set the standards for the their own education: that is done by the adults at the local, state, and federal level. And as long as there is public pressure from ADULTS to keep education co-ed, it will remain that way.
