This program is great for individuals interested in joining the military or who want to become more self-reliant or self-disciplined. Every morning, students raise the flags upon the flag poles, and take them down after school. NJROTC has a push-up team during football games and gives 22 pushups for every touchdown as well as during pep rallies in support of the 22 soldiers’ lives that are lost to suicide. Students have practiced every day for competitive events with an exclusion to Fridays. Students also are involved in many activities each month for community service projects. “Our mission in ROTC is to teach citizenship to students by lots of community service, we teach personal responsibility by wearing uniforms weekly and keeping up with it, and a sense of accomplishment through our academics, our extra-curricular activities, and our service to the community. We also teach practical leadership by giving cadets leadership opportunities.” – Captain Fadok
