Maritime High School is a new small high school opening in September 2021 with its first ninth grade class. Maritime is a collaborative project of Highline Public Schools, Northwest Maritime Center, Port of Seattle, and the Duwamish River Cleanup Coalition, with many community and industry partners engaged to support our students.

Student learning will center on the environment, marine science, and maritime careers working on or near the water. To do this, students will engage in integrated projects, learning across all high school content areas. 

A typical week at Maritime will include time in the classroom, virtual (distance) instruction from home, and frequent field experiences and boat-based learning. In the 11th- and 12th-grade years, students will participate in internships to gain workforce skills and knowledge.  

Students will engage in project-based learning, working with teachers, community partners and industry experts in hands-on experiences; an innovative transcript will demonstrate their learning across all academic subject areas.

By graduation, students will have skills to launch a Maritime career, and will also be ready to continue studying in a 2 or 4-year college. Regardless of a student’s life path, attendance in this school will increase their understanding of the natural world, increase their competency in practical skills, and offer them a greater awareness of the career opportunities of the sea and beyond.

These sessions will be held on Zoom. Learn more at the website:
