The Grauer School is renowned for its academic excellence and concentrated efforts in maintaining a low student to teacher ratio, providing highly individualized attention to each and every student. Grauer School Principal Dana Abplanalp-Diggs explains, "This year, many of our graduates accepted scholarships from colleges in the Pacific Northwest region; colleges in this part of the country have an emphasis on environmental and ecological sustainability as well as the creative arts. 75% of The Grauer School Class of 2013 engaged in some form of the visual and performing arts as well as sustainable outreach programs. Many of our students took a leadership role in our Green Grauer campus initiative that included composting in our organic garden, revamping the greenhouse, constructing recycling bins from wood and harvesting on-campus produce for the Harvest Cooking Class elective. Our students excelled in these areas of distinction and launched several new programs including the first Grauer record label and Rainbow Coalition, an organization that emphasizes tolerance and compassion.
