Vicky Wilby

Vicky Wilby was originally from the U.K. and now lives in Orange County with her husband and two daughters. In her free time she enjoys walking at the beach, spending time with her family, reading historical fiction, and traveling to Europe as often as possible. During her time as an elementary school teacher she became disheartened by how much the traditional education system focused on control and test scores, stifling children’s natural curiosity, creativity and love of learning. When her own daughters entered public school and  she witnessed the stress and anxiety the system was causing them, Vicky realized there had to be a better way and found The Open School. Vicky has been a parent at The Open School for three years, and now in her role as admissions coordinator for the Orange County campus she loves having the opportunity to help other families discover the freedom, empowerment and endless possibilities of self directed education at our unique school.
