Place-based Education

Port Townsend School District has aligned the curriculum along a central Maritime Framework to anchor all subjects and grade levels in experiences in the local 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. Our curriculum is continually being improved and changed, so check back as we keep this page updated.
