SaintJoe H2O is the learning network for the Saint Joseph Marine Institute. The "Saint Joseph Marine Institute," (SJMI) is the name for a unique high school program in the field of Marine Biology within the Saint Joseph School District. The program takes place after normal school hours. Our old static website dates back to 1999, and can be found here. For the visual addict in you... click here: 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 to view thousands of images from our last five field studies in the Bahamas and Florida Keys.
As you might be able to tell, this will likely be the final year of using this platform for our class. We will likely be making the jump back to an open Wordpress site in the near future.
