Welcome to OCEAN!
       Rhody Parade Port Townsend's OCEAN K-12 (Opportunity, Community, Experience, Academics, Navigation) is an independent study, contract-based program for students in grade K-12 supported with classroom, experiential and expeditionary experiences, and connections with the community. We strive to meet students' academic needs through their interests, passions and families.

Our school helps students meet the requirements of Washington State's academic expectations and Port Townsend High School graduation requirements, while following the state's public school Alternative Learning Experience WACs (rules).
