Dr. Grauer recently visited the 9/11 Memorial Museum in New York for the first time. This week's column reflects his sobering visit to this profound memorial honoring all the people who were lost on that day, and remembering the loss of our innocence as a nation.
Congratulations to Grauer's Middle School Robotics team, the Grauer Gorillegos, for competing in the First Lego League (FLL) SoCal Regional Tournament at Legoland on Sunday, December 3.
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, California. 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, and develop values like personal motivation, freedom, and courage.
