The Open School
Kindergarten through 12th grade
Orange County’s first and only Democratic Free School

Beginning in 2012, a group of educators came together around the dream of a free democratic school in Orange County. Over three years of founding, the Open School's philosophy coalesced, influenced by free democratic models, restorative justice circles, world-schooling philosophy, and a fundamental belief in the dignity and agency of young people.

At the Open School, students design their own curricula based on their personal interests, they have an equal vote in school rules and how the budget is spent, and spend much of their time 'world schooling' on field trips to parks, zoos, local businesses and more.
