The Army Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC) at Brockton High School motivates students to be better citizens by helping to prepare them for responsible leadership roles and success after graduation. The corps is organized as a military organization, with the students themselves filling the various leadership positions. Optional co-curricular activities such as the Drill Team, Color Guard, "Raider" (adventure / physical fitness) Team and the Command and Staff Council reinforce what the students learn in class. The faculty consists of a retired officer and noncommissioned officer certified by the U.S. Army to teach JROTC classes. Students who enroll in this program are under no obligation for military service after high school or Senior ROTC in college.
The JROTC curriculum is designed to develop ethical values and good citizenship, leadership potential, effective communications skills, logical thinking, improved physical fitness, an incentive to live drug-free, positive self-motivation and self-management, an understanding of the role of the U.S. Armed Forces, and the skills to work as part of a team. For information on specific courses and prerequisites see the Brockton High School Course of Study Guide on pages 97 & 98.
