Welcome to The Open School
We are a group of people starting a democratic school in Orange County, California. The school will be committed to learner led education that respects, trusts, and empowers students to pursue their interests, optimize their potential as human beings, and allow their true selves to emerge. To learn more, click on the About and FAQ links.
Interested in helping out? We are holding informational meetings every month around South Orange County. Find out where on our Events page. Come to a meeting, learn more about the school, ask questions and discuss educational philosophy. To sign up to be on our mailing list, click Contact Us and let us know you want to join the effort. You will be kept in the loop on our progress, given opportunities to contribute, and invited to all upcoming events.
How could youths better learn to live than by at once trying the experiment of living?
