What JROTC Is All About

Unlike popular belief, JROTC is not to force or prepare high school students for the military. It is exactly what our mission statement says,"To motivate young people to become better citizens." This program helps prepare students for the next step after high school, whether that be college or the work force. It gives students the chance to gain and strengthen leadership capabilities. Throughout the year, students will be learning how to command squads and platoons and will also learn a variety of other useful information such as: first aid, etiquette, how to handle finances and taxes, and how to get accurate research on different colleges and jobs.
