Dr. Grauer collaborates with Alicia Tembi, Grauer History teacher, to review the recent movie "8th Grade". Although the movie compels viewers to recall their own teenage angst, it also encourages empathy for our current generation of 8th graders who are dealing with new challenges.
10th Grade Chemistry students visited General Atomics last week, where the students combined their newfound knowledge of nuclear chemistry, stability, and change with discussions on how nations currently generate electricity.
7th Grade Life Science students have started to explore the world of cells in class, learning about the connections between cells, tissues, organs and systems.
Welcome to The Grauer School!
As a premier private school in San Diego, we are steadfastly dedicated to preparing tomorrow’s leaders for roles in our global community. The Grauer School was founded in 1991 by Dr. Stuart Grauer to provide teens with an environment to develop their own empowered voices. Our green, six-acre campus in Encinitas, California offers diverse programs accommodating approximately 150 students in grades seven through 12.
Our Socratic learning environment allows our students to stand on their own two feet while developing critical thinking skills necessary to meet the unique challenges of a rapidly changing society and world. Our curriculum allows students the flexibility to take classes for fun, learn how to make mistakes, become confident pursuing their passions, and ultimately follow their hearts doing things they are drawn to, rather than plotting out preordained or controlled paths they have little or no control over.
At the Grauer School, we believe our students achieve more enduring outcomes by cultivating independent thinking faculties necessary for self-empowerment, which includes formulating core values like personal motivation, freedom, and courage. Our innovative curriculum has resulted in many students matriculating to the nation’s finest colleges and universities. As an inclusive private school in San Diego committed to celebrating diversity in all forms, we welcome students of many cultural and social backgrounds throughout the United States and across the globe.
