Palms has participated in the TopSail Youth Program of the Los Angeles Maritime Institute since the 2004-2005 school year. The program enriches conventional school curricula by bringing biology, mathematics, physics, geography, history, literature and the environment to life in the real world classroom of the sea.
In March and April, three groups of sixth grade students each have a one-day learning experience on a tall ship. They learn to hoist the sail, climb the rigging, do simple navigation, and take part in other activities.
In May or June, twenty-seven selected students participate in a multi-day voyage to Santa Catalina and back.
Altogether, 90 to 100 students experience at least one day on a tall ship. If you would like to learn more, get in touch with Mr. Clair.
