Click HERE to read the letter to parents or guardians of all
prospective Hamilton High School students!!
It is important to understand that the nature of AFJROTC as well as its high visibility within the school and community requires its members to adhere to higher standards than might normally be found among the student body. Students are expected to live with honor, following our Honor Code, “I will not lie, cheat, or steal nor tolerate those who do.” Successful students eagerly conform to these high, yet attainable standards.
AFJROTC operates within the framework of a military organization. This provides a structure for students to develop leadership and management skills. Students earn positive recognition, responsibility and other opportunities for their integrity, service, and excellence.
Parents or guardians will be disappointed if they expect AFJROTC to be a disciplinary or rehabilitation program.
AFJROTC is not preparation for the military. Students have no military or government service obligation. Most students do not enter the military or the aerospace industry.
There are, however, benefits for students seeking appointment to a service academy, Air Force college ROTC scholarships, or enlistment in the military services, that are not available to the general student body.
Being a cadet also has near term benefits. Earning 1½ AFJROTC credits completes the Chandler Unified School District Physical Education (PE) graduation requirement. Also, students may earn college credit for AS100, 200, 210, 300 or 400 with Adams State College.
