  • Welcome to Westside High School 

    The purpose of the NJROTC Program is to instill in students the value of citizenship, service to the United States, personal responsibility, and a sense of accomplishment.   This is accomplished through classroom instruction, participation and competitive teams and assignment in a military structure.   Cadets are encouraged to develop their potential by participating in competitive teams such as male and female drill teams, teams, academic teams and color guards.  Other very important parts of the NJROTC program are participation in orientation trips to military installations and community service.  The Westside NJROTC Unit believes strongly in giving back to the community and participates in over 2,000 hours of community service projects during the school year.
