Maritime High School Opens Fall 2021

Maritime High School Opens Fall 2021

Maritime High School is a new small high school opening in September 2021 with its first 9th-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. The new school will connect students to project-based learning centered on the environment, marine science and maritime careers.

Students starting 9th grade in 2021 can apply to Maritime High School. Enrollment is open to students across the region. Students interested in attending Maritime High School must submit an application during the application window, which opens January 1 and closes January 31, 2021 at 11:00 p.m.

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 workplace skills and knowledge.  

Students will engage 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 the skills to launch a Maritime career immediately or to continue studying in a 2- or 4-year college. Regardless of a student’s life path, attendance in this school will enhance their understanding of the natural world, increase their competency in practical skills, and offer them a greater awareness of career opportunities on the sea and beyond.
