At Nokomis Regional High School in Newport, Maine, cadets enrolled in Army JROTC don't just shout orders and do drills everyday. The JROTC program is designed to help prepare students for responsible leadership roles while making them aware of their rights, responsibilities, and privileges as American Citizens. The program is a stimulus for promoting graduation from high school and it provides instruction and rewarding opportunities that will benefit the student, Nokomis Regional High School and the surrounding community and the Nation. The Nokomis JROTC curriculum also aids in the development of broad, life-long skills that are essential for success in the cadet's life and future roles.
Of course, you learn more than just about becoming a leader. You learn about the ranks in the Army, how to read maps and there are even teams you can join. These teams include the following: Drill Team, Raiders, Air Rifle Team, Color Guard, and Honor Guard. Like sports, you have to try out for each team, except for Honor Guard, which you are chosen for depending on an individuals grades. If you have any failing grades, then you would have to bring them up before you could be eligible for Honor Guard.
