The article, Three Principles for Schools of the Future, describes the essential traits for a future-focused school. What makes The Grauer School a "future school," is a set of deep and shared beliefs about the nature of school.
We strongly believe that The Grauer School is among the best in the world at balancing college preparation with Expeditionary Learning. This week, our students are engaged in intensive domestic and intercultural experiences on their weeklong Expeditions.
Grauer 11th graders welcomed a panel of immigrants and immigration experts to supplement their unit on industrialization and immigration. The firsthand accounts provided insight into the realities of immigration including the challenges faced and the social and economic benefits.
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.
