    Welcome to the Pebble Hills High School's Navy JROTC website. Students from the EL Dorado and Montwood campuses attend NAVY JROTC classes here at Pebble Hills. They are bused daily for periods; 7th and 8th. The NAVY JROTC program is hosted at Pebble Hills High School.  Our program has earned "Distinguished Unit with Academic" honors the past seven consecutive years. In 2017, our Area Manager selected Pebble Hills as Area Nine's "Most Outstanding Unit". We finished the 2016-17 school year with being ranked the Nations "3rd Most Outstanding Unit" in the nation amongst 583 NJROTC and 31 NNDCC programs. Our unit prides itself on discipline and have produced some very competitive special teams (Armed, Unarmed, Colorguard, Academic, Physical Fitness, and Air Rifle). The unit participates in many community service and school-wide projects throughout the school year.

    Despite many misconceptions, our program is not a training ground for future military members nor are we in any way pushing anyone in that direction. However, if a cadet expresses interest in military service, our instructors will certainly provide the necessary guidance. Our NJROTC program focuses mainly on improving one's self-discipline, the ability to lead, accepting accountability and responsibility, being a good citizen and making the right choices. We are dedicated into molding and building "America's leaders of tomorrow!" Any student with the will and drive to succeed and become a leader can join our Navy JROTC program. Simply get parental approval, contact your respective counselor and request the course. This will certainly become a decision you will never regret!!!

    HISTORY
     

    The NJROTC program was established by Public Law in 1964 and may be found in Title 10, U.S. Code, Chapter 102. The program is conducted at accredited secondary schools throughout the nation, by instructors who are retired Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard officers and enlisted personnel. The NJROTC curriculum emphasizes citizenship and leadership development, as well as our maritime heritage, the significance of sea power, and naval topics such as the fundamentals of naval operations, seamanship, navigation and meteorology. Classroom instruction is augmented throughout the year by community service activities, drill competition, field meets, flights, visits to naval activities, marksmanship training, and other military training. Uniforms, textbooks, training aids, travel allowance, and a substantial portion of instructors' salaries are provided by the Navy.

    Anchors Aweigh
     
    Anchors Aweigh, my boys, Anchors Aweigh
    Farewell to college joys, we sail at break of day-ay-ay-ay.
    Through our last ashore, drink to the foam.
    Until we meet once more:
    Here's wishing you a happy voyage home!
     
    Stand, Navy out to sea, fight our battle cry!
    We'll never change our course, so vicious foe steer shy-y-y-y.
    Roll out the T-N-T - BOOM! Anchors Aweigh. Sail on to victory and sink their bones to Davy Jones,
    Hooray!!
