How many people remember middle school as the best years of their life? Hardly anyone, we'd guess, and for good reason: It happens during that awkward, fidgety purgatory called adolescence, when the growth spurt sets in and kids' minds and bodies are so painfully out of sync that girls and boys seem to inhabit different planets. With all those raging hormones, it's a wonder anybody ever learns to diagram sentences or convert fractions to decimals. You'd think there had to be a better way, and in fact there always was. Among private schools, there's been a long tradition of separate institutions for boys and girls.

The boys in the seventh-grade classroom wave their hands wildly and squirm in their seats, unable to contain their joy in a competition involving singular and plural nouns. Their teacher seems undaunted by the outbursts of cheering. These are boys, after all. Sometimes they are loud. In a struggling East Baltimore neighborhood, the middle-schoolers have begun their second year at an all-boys charter school whose creation marks a distinct shift in thinking about single-sex education in the public schools.

It is planning aggressively to play as important a role in its next century as in its last.

DIEPSLOOT, South Africa -- Joshua Masekwameng stood outside his mother's shack absorbing the good news: His tuition for hotel management school next year would be paid in full, thanks to some generous strangers 8,000 miles away in Baltimore. Two weeks ago, the 260 middle school students at St. Paul's School for Boys raised $1,573 for his education. That sum, coupled with contributions from individuals who had earlier read about him, will more than cover the $2,600 cost for the second year of his two-year diploma program.

On the year's hottest day so far, boys with rolled-up sleeves and girls with rolled-down knee socks trekked across the campus of Trinity School, taking in during one walking tour -- simultaneously -- the past, present and future of Howard County's oldest private school. Trinity, in Ellicott City, celebrated its 60th anniversary yesterday, but there has been a school on the property since 1912. And if those who love it have anything to say about it, the school will have an even longer future.

IN ADMIRATION and gratitude, I applaud the tough, courageous stand that St. Paul's School for Boys has taken in the sex video matter. In an age of MTV culture and Clintonian morals, the school's decisive disciplinary actions proclaim a clear and unequivocal message -- there are standards and principles of decent human behavior which students must not only comply with, but should also honor and esteem. If you've missed what happened, a 16-year-old sophomore on St. Paul's junior varsity lacrosse team videotaped himself having sex with a 15-year-old girl without her knowledge.
