JROTC

JROTC

Upperman Junior ROTC is a high school elective course given during regular school hours, but includes many out-of-classroom activities. Students learn the basics in history, government, technology awareness, and current events. Learning leadership skills (ie. how to motivate others) and personal skills (how to study, take tests, and interview for jobs) are essential pieces of the program. Upperman JROTC challenges students through teamwork, discipline, and physical fitness. These attributes allow students to train each other in order to become better citizens within their communities. What students study in Junior ROTC won't be found in any textbook. It won't be studied by any other students or in any other schools. It hasn't been taught before. It won't be taught again, because the subject of JROTC is YOU, our students! JROTC is all about you. You are its' whole. It's devoted to your growth, both as a student and as a person. JROTC prepares you for life - NOT for the military!

The JROTC program allows students to lead and develop younger cadets. This allows students the opportunity to development leadership qualities in school that will help them succeed outside of school. No other class offers the opportunity for students to teach other students, which makes this program so unique. JROTC also involves students' integration of teamwork. Through the development of teamwork, students learn to depend on each other and discover the best way to achieve success is by helping and supporting each other.
