Jule F. Sumner HS Army JROTC Program
Sumner High School has a fully funded Army JROTC program. Cadets particpate in the daily morning and afternoon flag ceremony. Our Honor Guard will be present at special occasions such as half staffing of the American Flag, parades and exhibitions, visits to Senior ROTC programs, guest speakers from all service branches as well as leaders in science, medical, engineering, robotics, public affairs and much more.
Our program falls under a more comprehensive curriculum as provided by Army Cadet Command which will be more comprehensive but also more fun. At Sumner HS we call our program the Leadership Academy with five levels where we will teach leadership, communication, teamwork, leadership labs and important life lessons.
We are NOT building students to go into the military, but building leaders for the future in whatever vocations they may choose. Our program teaches life lessons. JROTC will also have a focus on writing and public speaking. We will continue to build and maintain the Cadet Garden located in the center of campus.
