Junior Reserve Officer Training Course (JROTC)
Spartanburg High School, in cooperation with the U.S. Army, offers a JROTC program to all its students. The mission of the JROTC program is “to help motivate young people to become better Americans.” Students electing to participate in the JROTC program will learn how to be more responsible leaders, work as a member of a team, gain leadership experience, learn and develop healthy nutrition habits, and gain an appreciation for physical fitness. Students will be taught to think logically and to communicate effectively, both orally and in writing. The students will be introduced to their rights, responsibilities, and privileges as American citizens. In addition to the core program, JROTC also provides extracurricular activities such as Drill Team, Color Guard Team, Marksmanship Team, Raider Team, and Academic Team. JROTC students participate in ceremonies, parades, adventure training, field trips, and community service projects.
