Air Force Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (AFJROTC)
Bellevue East High School and Bellevue West High School hold a longstanding history of excellent Air Force Junior ROTC programs.
Our mission is to “Develop Citizens of Character Dedicated to Serving Their Nation and Community”
AFJROTC does not recruit students for military service.
AFJROTC is a daily class and program that develops and challenges students to be respectful, responsible, and organized; keys to success for all career paths. Students practice teamwork, leadership, communication, and planning skills. They develop self-respect and a sense of accomplishment by working with their peers to improve their school and community. Most students (80%) do not pursue a military career; however, JROTC provides additional opportunities and pay for those that elect a military path. No service commitment is required.
BPS awards full elective credit for each semester completed and this is calculated into a student’s GPA. Additionally, physical education and health requirements for graduation are completed within the curriculum. A cornerstone of Bellevue Public Schools since 1968.
**Our four-year program can be started at any grade level with instructor permission.**
Optional activities for AFJROTC cadets include: Drill Team, Saber Team, Air Rifle Team, CyberPatriot, Model Airplane, Rocket Club, Orienteering (Land Navigation), Kitty Hawk honor society, and Cadet Corps Leadership positions.
