More important than "what" is learned in JROTC is "how" it is learned.
Every classroom is equipped with leading edge technologies to teach, assess, and report student progress.
Teachers are trained to utilize a range of technologies and develop social/emotional skills, support academic content through gaming and simulations, and promote the role of social media.
Thus, students engage in meaningful, purposeful activities that lead them to demonstrate success through a portfolio of accomplishments.
