Yes. Beauxbatons is a co-ed school. The reason why the movies portray it as an all-girls school is for cinematic balance - because Durmstrang is presented being in the movie as an all-boys school. The book doesn't say if it's all-boys or co-ed, but I think that Durmstrang is more liable to be just males.
Then in the movie it's like - presenting Hogwarts : quirky, off-key, wonky. presenting Beauxbatons : light, fairie, flowing, graceful. presenting durmstrang : manly, carrying big magic sticks, acrobatic, quidditch star.
There are a number of icons that became available after GoF came out, all "explaining" the differences between movie and book. One of them said, "Beauxbatons : All of our boys died of sexual frustration."
It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.
