Congratulations to Grauer senior Grady L. '18 for signing a National Letter of Intent on November 8, to join the equestrian team at the University of South Carolina, an NCAA Division I school.
The Grauer School observed the UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization) International Day of Tolerance on Tuesday, November 21. Students participated in special Tolerance Day workshops organized by Grauer students and faculty.
On Friday, November 17, the Middle School students participated in an afternoon of community service. Some students went to help the Community Resource Center sort donations for their Holiday Basket program, while other students stayed on campus and rotated through service stations.
In World History class, Grauer's 10th grade students have been learning about the Age of Enlightenment. For the culminating activity of the unit, students dressed as their philosopher and attended our "Enlightenment Salon," where they represented the attitudes and opinions of their influential figure.
I'm often asked what makes The Grauer School different from other secondary schools. We are a school founded on the core value of kindness. We believe that every student has an innate talent and, when given the space and support to pursue it, they will achieve happiness, joy, and success. We are the best at balancing expeditionary learning and relationship-based education with college preparation.
While a few teachers may work earlier or later days on occasion, our campus is officially open, with doors unlocked, from 8:00am to 5:00pm. We understand that there are occasional circumstances that impede a timely pick up or drop off, but the campus gets pretty dark and pretty cold quickly through the winter months.
