The Harbor School is one of 581 high schools in New York City but it is arguably one of the most distinctive. In addition to the traditional curriculum common to all schools in the city, the Harbor School offers specialized studies in various marine fields: ocean engineering, marine systems technology, vessel operations, marine biology research, aquaculture, and professional diving. Tenth grade scientific diving students learn to scuba dive, and all graduates from the school are well positioned for further education in these fields or entry-level jobs in a wide variety of capacities. It is the only public high school in the United States that offers a scientific diving program recognized by the American Academy of Underwater Sciences. Learn how this school is building a legacy by inspiring young people from the inner city to connect with the local environment through a forward looking project to repopulate the waters around New York City with native oysters, and how they are growing the divers of the future through their dedicated marine sciences curriculum. The school serves as an example of how this can be done in every community in the United States.
