Co-institutional
CO-INSTITUTIONAL schools employ a style of schooling wherein both male and female students study on the same campus but classes are single-gender. Usually each division has its own building but may, on few occasions, use the facilities of the other division. Each division has its own administration and maintains its own courses, dress code, schedule, and other aspects. The two divisions may often share the same name. This system is founded on the belief that students learn better in a single-gender environment. A co-institutional school differs from a single-sex school because it offers closer interaction between the two genders. Activities such as track and field , theater , cross country , model UN , ultimate , mock trial , speech and debate , and multi-cultural clubs are more successful under this system than they might otherwise be at a single-sex school

Ultimate (sport)
ULTIMATE, originally known as ULTIMATE FRISBEE, is a non-contact team sport originally played by players with a flying disc (frisbee). The term frisbee , often used to generically describe all flying discs, is a registered trademark of the Wham-O toy company, and thus, though still extremely common in casual usage, the sport is not officially called "ultimate frisbee". Points are scored by passing the disc to a teammate in the opposing end zone . Other basic rules are that players must not take steps while holding the disc, and interceptions, incomplete passes, and passes out of bounds are turnovers. Rain, wind, or occasionally other adversities can make for a testing match with rapid turnovers, heightening the pressure of play
