Join Dr. Grauer on Indonesia's serene Lombok Island for this story that rethinks intelligence through the lens of nature's vast sensory world and the limitations of modern education. This is a journey that inspires you to remove some limitations on how we might all bring about change.
Welcome to The Grauer School!
As a premier independent 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 160 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 forming 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 independent school committed to celebrating diversity in all forms, we welcome students of many cultural and social backgrounds throughout the United States and across the globe.
The Visual & Performing Arts Department presented their High School Music Cafe Night, with students performing 29 songs. Thank you to our Grauer community for coming to the performance to support our Grauer musicians!
Our annual Discover Grauer Day Open House was held on November 4, and we met so many incredible families who came to learn more about The Grauer School’s balanced, holistic program. We sincerely appreciate everyone who made this event such a success!
