Maritime and Place-Based Learning
The Port Townsend School district has an initiative to align our curriculum along a central Maritime Framework to anchor all subjects and grade levels in experiences in our maritime community. Through this maritime and place-based learning students are connected with land and sea over the course of their careers. The curriculum emphasizes developing student skills and dispositions along our place-based learning themes. At Blue Heron students engage in a wide range of projects.
