Dr. Grauer recently attended a Brain Injury Rehabilitation Conference in San Diego. The lecturer was end-of-life expert Roshi Joan Halifax, Ph.D., a Buddhist teacher, Zen priest, and explorer of "fierce compassion". The life's work of the true observer is to listen the wisdom of our students ... and isn't this the paradox of Socratic teaching?
Thanks to everyone who attended Grauer's Casino Night event on March 10. We had a great turnout, from fiercely competitive poker players to beginners who got tips and instructions on blackjack, craps and roulette. Our 6th Annual Poker Tournament took place as part of the event.
The Grauer School Leadership Team is in solidarity with concerned students and educators nationwide about an issue of ultimate importance to the lives of the students our schools strive to serve.
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.
