Since everyone is about to start school again next week, it's a good time for Dr. Grauer to come clean and talk about mistakes. But, the mistakes he's talking about are often unquestioned as "truths" and presumed as normalcy in educational circles—otherwise known as "normal mistakes."
In this week's column, Dr. Grauer shares excerpts from a study by noted psychologist Jean Twenge, covering breaking research on "smartphone" use—the most ironic name in technology history. Dr. Grauer's question, which might be yours after you read this column, is: Why aren't smartphones treated like a controlled substance?
Chris W. '20 competed at the USA Track and Field (USATF) Junior Olympics, which took place from July 24-30 in Lawrence, Kansas. He was very excited to finish in 7th place in his event.
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.
