Students in JROTC maximize potential success through self-management and leadership skills. They incorporate principles of mental and physical wellness into behaviors and decisions. Relationships with peers, co-workers, and the community are stressed. Students build global awareness through the application of physical and political geography, and correlate the rights and responsibilities of citizenship to the purposes of US government. Events in US history are related to current American choices and responsibilities. The role of the military is characterized, in addition to other national service organizations. Cadets develop broad, life-long skills that students use for success in all career and life roles. They are drawn from the over-all goals and values that drive the program. Core abilities are learned throughout the JROTC curriculum, linked together in lesson competencies and threaded together over four years. #2700

RAIDER PREP: Grade 9-12, Year=2 CR, Prerequisite=JROTC Cadet 

Raider Prep is designed for JROTC students who desire to take Raider Competition or to enhance their physical condition and team building capabilities.  In addition to academic curriculum, students participate in strenuous physical fitness activities and journal their progress throughout the course. Students who need additional help, can practice after school. Students will maximize their potential for success through leadership, physical exercise and team building activities. Physical fitness is a major part of the Raider Prep program and includes the Army Physical Fitness test (2-mile run, pushups and sit-ups), the cadet challenge (1-minute curl-ups, V-sit, shuttle run, pull ups and the 1-mile run) as well as frequent runs between 1-5 miles. Cadets will develop self-confidence as they reach their determined physical goals, as well as life-long skills and character building. The objective of the Raider Prep program is to strengthen cadet’s character, physical fitness, and prepare them for Raider Competition.  #2706, 27062
 

RAIDER COMPETITION: Grade 10-12, Year=2 CR, Prerequisite= Raider Prep

JROTC students who qualify to participate in Raider Competition will fulfill both Raider curriculum and strenuous physical fitness activities. Students will participate in mandatory after school practices a minimum of three times per week. Students will maximize their potential for success in leadership and teamwork skills as well as extensive study in Raider academic subjects including: map reading, first aid and problem solving. Physical fitness is a major part of the Raider Competition program and includes the Army Physical Fitness test (2-mile run, pushups, and sit-ups). Raiders also participate in a 10K road march, biathlon, 25-ft rope climb and military vehicle pull. Cadets develop broad, life-long skills and character building for success in all career and life rolls. The intent of the Raider Competition program is to strengthen cadet’s character, physical fitness, and academic skills so OHS will continuously have a pool of qualified Raiders to meet the many challenges of Raider competitions throughout the Midwest. Grades will be monitored throughout this course; if students have failing grades they will ineligible to compete in Raider Competitions.  Students with final failing grades at the end of a semester, will not be allowed to participate in Raider Competition the following semester. Students removed from the team will need instructor approval to re-enroll in Raider Comp. #2707, 27072
