What is NJROTC?


The mission of the Navy Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps (NJROTC) program is to instill in students the values of citizenship, service to the United States, personal responsibility, and sense of accomplishment.
The NJROTC curriculum emphasizes citizenship and leadership development, as well as our maritime heritage, the significance of sea power, and naval topics such as the fundamentals of naval operations, seamanship, navigation and meteorology. Classroom instruction is augmented throughout the year by community service activities, drill competition, field meets, visits to naval activities, marksmanship training, and other military training. For active cadets, the greatest benefit is personal growth and development, and the opportunity to realize untapped potential.



The Navy JROTC Annual Military Inspection (AMI) is conducted every other year to certify and inspect the Navy JROTC program at BHS.  The inspecting officer is the NJROTC 5 Area Manager, Captain Jim Daniels US Navy (Retired).  He inspects each NJROTC Cadet in a platoon formation, receives a formal administrative, operational and supply/logistics brief from the NJROTC Staff.  Additionally, he reviews and inspects the Citizenship Development Management and Information System (CDMIS) with the Admin and Supply Officer. The inspection culminates with the Bulldog Battlation Pass in Review parade held at the BHS Football Field.  This year’s Reviewing Officer for the Pass in Review was a BHS Principal – Ms. Robynne Prince as representatives from Bowie NJROTC Boosters and parents/guardians and their guests.  The end state? The Bulldog Battalion passed the inspection!
