A sister school is usually a pair of schools, usually single-sex school, one with female students and the other with male students. This relationship is seen to benefit both schools.[1]


The term sister school (or brother school) has several alternate meanings:

  • a definite financial commerce between two colleges or universities
  • two schools that have a strong historical connection
  • two schools which have social activities involving students from both schools
  • two schools under the same management
  • two schools built using the same floor plan/layout
  • two schools in different nations that have established a collaborative international partnership.
