Abstract: Gender difference is a big issue in both psychology and education areas. Most studies on gender differences in school achievement ignore the fact that individuals hold multiple statuses. The present study examines -gender differences of Singapore adolescents (ages 13-16) in their growing up years from a number of perspectives. It tries to present briefly some information regarding the intellectual and psychological growth of Singapore adolescents and to show a global picture of their gender differences. This paper will also discuss the results and implications for educators, schools and researchers who need to adopt a broader cultural perspective in their work if they are going to change the opportunities and outcomes for the next generation of students. The discussion in this paper hopes to inform and contribute towards such an effort.
