How common is the JROTC program in your local high school?

My old school had a Navy/Marine JROTC program with 4 full-time and like 400 students in it. My new school only has 1 Army JROTC teacher who teaches one section of each grade level and also teaches PE.

It is relatively new (10 years, maybe) at our high school, and it has been a fantastic program for our kids. We have a small school, so it is a small program.

I'm retired now, but I believe we may have had the largest in the country. It's very popular in the community and is well run. The kids travel to competitions and get many opportunities they wouldn't otherwise have. It's a 100% free lunch district.

I don't think it is at every high school, but I know of two that have it. We have 13 traditional high schools in my district.

I teach in our state’s largest district and we do not, nor do the surrounding suburbs, have any any JROTC programs. I think there are about eight in small, rural districts around the state.

One of our high schools has had the Marine Corps JROTC for many years. It is very popular and kids will often choose that school so they can participate. The teams get medals every year in national competitions and many of the kids go straight into the service after graduation. We are also a 100% free lunch district and it gives kids a great opportunity to learn discipline and plan for their futures. The kids who choose not to go into the service are also highly sought after by employers after graduation..
