We all thought Dr. Grauer would give a standard annual fund "lift" speech at our recent "bell ringing" event—but 150 people stood by enthralled when they received this history lesson...
Thanks to everyone who came to our fun and festive Backyard Jam event last Friday, October 13. It was a wonderful evening filled with Grauer community spirit!
This week's column takes the reader to Japan with Dr. Grauer, in the early days of his teaching career. Through his interactions with a Japanese family and his extraordinary adventures on the trip, he learned valuable lessons including how the role of a teacher is different in other cultures and how the teacher can sometimes be the student.
The Grauer School, one of San Diego’s premier prep schools, was founded in 1991 by Dr. Stuart Grauer to give teens a voice. Our students have matriculated to the nation’s finest colleges and universities. Our campus and diverse programs accommodate approximately 150 students in grades seven through 12.
Students spend their days in a Socratic environment on our green, six-acre campus in Encinitas, CA. We want our students to try classes for fun, make mistakes, follow a passion, and do things that they are drawn to rather than plotting out a preordained or controlled path. We believe they will achieve more enduring outcomes and passions in this way, develop values like personal motivation, freedom, and courage.
