Maritime Scholars Program (MTSP)


The Maritime Scholars Program is designed to support the development of gifted and talented youth.  Through comprehensive, intensive and balanced curriculum, students develop their individual talents and relate their experience to the realities of their community and the world at large.  Students share common classes and teachers.  This allows for collaboration across the curriculum and a greater degree of personalization between teachers and students.  The goal is to encourage students to be active learners, well-rounded individuals, and engaged citizens.


The Maritime Scholars Program is open to all students n the Los Angeles Unified School District who are committed to high academic achievement.
