WELCOME TO THE HOME PAGE OF MARYSVILLE TOMAHAWK COMPANY - NAVY JUNIOR RESERVE OFFICER TRAINING CORPS (NJROTC)
NJROTC - It's not just marching.
The NJROTC program is an elective course available to all ninth through twelfth grade students of Marysville School District.
NJROTC is available to any student registered in the Marysville High School District and transportation is provided during 6th and 7th period from MGHS to the NJROTC site at MPHS. A&T students can attend 0 hour and have transportation back to A&T. You choose your course of study and we will help you navigate to success!
The goals of the program are to develop informed and responsible citizens; to strengthen character, self-discipline, respect for authority; and to provide knowledge about mission and opportunities in the uniformed services.
NJROTC provides broadened opportunities for qualified students (cadets) to gain entrance to one of the service academies or NJROTC college scholarships. Should a cadet choose to enlist in the Armed Forces immediately following high school graduation, a certificate of completion of at least 3 years of NJROTC ensures entrance at a higher pay rate.
NJROTC is entirely voluntary, it does NOT obligate the cadet to military service. All books, instructional materials, and uniforms are provided free of charge.
The Marysville District program located at Marysville-Pilchuck High School is Navy oriented. The instructors are retired Navy; the uniforms and academic curriculum are Navy based. The program, however, seeks to expose cadets to basic employability skills - LEADERSHIP, TEAMWORK, MOTIVATION, CREATIVE THINKING, COMMUNICATIONS, AND GOAL SETTING - skills sought not only by the military services but also by ALL employers and organizations.
All of our events are student planned and executed! All are invited to attend!
Watch our calendar as we get busy!
