NEHS proudly salutes our service men and women...past, present and future. ROTC
Our program here has a long history of excellence led by our Senior Naval Science Instructor, Commander Chad West, and our Naval Science Instructor, Senior Chief Kent Malone.  Each year, our cadets go through an inspection called the Annual Military Inspection (AMI).  This inspection is conducted by the Navy to ensure that each NJROTC unit operates and maintains the Navy's standards.  The semi-formal inspection consists of an armed Color Guard, unarmed drill, armed basic drill, and an individual personnel inspection. Last year, our cadets received the Unit Achievement Award, and they plan to be a Distinguished Unit this year. Also, last year at state competition our cadets competed in air rifles, academics, drills, and soon-to-be drones.  They received 2nd place overall in the state. These cadets are a great example of leadership on our campus, and we are so proud of them.To see a video about
