Inspiring Respect, Resilience and the ability to Think and Act Inclusively in our international environment
The Air Force Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (AFJROTC) was established at AFNORTH International High School in September of 1994 by agreement between the Isles Unified School District and Headquarters, United States Air Force JROTC.
All students, regardless of nationality, are welcome to our program.
Our HQ defined mission is to: “Develop citizens of character dedicated to serving their nation and community”. Because Citizenship is our focus, we discuss and impart our shared American and Air Force values, such as: integrity, trust, fidelity, loyalty, accountability, excellence, sacrifice, dependability and service to country. The AFJROTC academic curriculum includes aerospace science, leadership and instructional Drill training.
Cadet officers and noncommissioned officers learn leadership and management skills by organizing and directing the NT-941 AFJROTC Corps. They learn by doing; as the instructors are more facilitators than teachers. Also, our Cadet Corps is fully involved in many activities both in the international, U.S. and wider school communities.
The Senior Aerospace Science Instructor (SASI) is a retired U.S. Air Force officer and the Aerospace Science Instructor (ASI) is a retired U.S. Air Force noncommissioned officer. These instructors have extensive professional military education and training, and many years teaching and training others.
Currently, there are over 879 AFJROTC programs worldwide with more than 367,000 cadets. Our numbers continue to grow because Congress, states and local school districts realize the value of a JROTC program. Every day in JROTC is a “Leadership Lab” – the Cadets are constantly challenged with new tasks, educational challenges and leadership opportunities.
