A New Way to Learn

Hello 8th-grade students and families,

Highline Public Schools will be opening the new Maritime High School this fall with its inaugural 9th-grade class. Maritime High School offers a new way to learn - beyond the walls of the classroom. Check out this video from our partner Northwest Maritime Center.

Interested? I invite you to apply.



Why Maritime?

The Maritime industry is the third largest economic driver in the state with a current workforce that is retiring. The Maritime industry offers:

  • And more!
