)-- The Grauer School, a non-profit, independent middle and high school (grades 6-12) located at 1500 S. El Camino Real in Encinitas, invites fifth-grade families to attend the upcoming "Discover Grauer Sixth Grade” campus tour event on Thursday, April 18th from 9:15 am to 10:30 am. The Grauer School, established in 1991 and now in its 22nd year, is a small school by design with only 150 students, ensuring close working relationships for the entire faculty and student body within a college preparatory environment.

Families will be given the opportunity to meet faculty, students, and parents as well as tour the campus that includes the Great Hall, visual and performing art spaces, science labs, student greenhouse, garden, athletic fields and more.
Families are asked to RSVP to the "Discover Grauer" event by phone at (760) 274-2116 or email at email@example.com.
