EXPECTATIONS. The purpose of the NJROTC program is “to instill in students the value of citizenship, service to the United States, personal responsibility, and a sense of accomplishment.” At New Bern High School we accomplish that by offering a challenging and rigorous course that includes academics, athletics, and a variety of after-school activities based on military skills and discipline, such as drill and marksmanship. Students will be assessed in all areas, some of which will affect their grade and others being rewarded with promotion.
As your instructors, we will ensure that unit policies, rules, and regulations conform to those of the national NJROTC program, Craven County Public Schools, and New Bern High School. We dedicate ourselves to maintaining a program that will enhance academic and social growth and development, and which will challenge the cadets and foster responsible citizenship. We will emphasize the development of leadership, character, self-confidence, self-discipline, and encourage both personal achievement and teamwork.
Cadets, in return, are expected to always give 100%; to do their best at every task. They are expected to follow all rules and carry themselves in a military manner at all times. As representatives of the United States Navy, they are expected to demonstrate the core values of Honor, Courage, and Commitment. As representatives of NBHS NJROTC, they are expected to live the ideals of Citizenship, Leadership, and Scholarship.
