From the Staten Island Advance!

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- While a new dedicated maritime-themed school is no longer being pursued on Staten Island, several schools in the borough are integrating maritime curriculum into a variety of subjects.

PS 59, New Brighton, has been incorporating maritime-themed curriculum into its daily teachings by focusing on the impact of the New York Harbor and the Billion Oyster Project -- which works to restore 1 billion live oysters in the harbor over the next two decades -- across all grades from pre-K to fifth grade.
