PRESS RELEASE: Media Advisory for Monday, July 24

Deputy Secretary Cindy Marten and Assistant Secretary Dr. Amy Loyd with the Department of Education will visit Maritime High School (MHS) and Raisbeck Aviation High School (RAHS) on Monday, July 24. 

Department of Education officials will learn about the schools’ innovative practices, lessons learned, challenges and successes. The visit aligns with the Department of Education’s Raise the Bar initiative to support and inspire innovative schools. 

MHS connects students with hands-on, project-based learning to create access to local maritime careers and open doors to college. The school is a collaborative project of Highline Public Schools, Northwest Maritime Center, Port of Seattle, and the Duwamish River Community Coalition, with many community and industry partners. 

RAHS is a math and science-focused college-preparatory high school designed to serve students who are passionate about aviation and flight, aerospace and space exploration, and related technical fields. 

The visit will include a tour and ride on the Admiral Jack, a boat operated by Northwest Maritime Center, which partners extensively with MHS.
