Marine Corps Junior ROTC (Reserve Officers’ Training Corps) 

This program develops responsible citizens, individual character, and leadership skills. Cadets receive the “life-skills” necessary to be successful both during high school and after, be it enlistment, employment, education, or some combination of what Henrico County Public Schools refers to as the “Three E’s.” 

There is no military obligation associated with participation in this program.  However, if desired, students may enter military service with advanced rank depending on the branch of military joined and number of years enrolled in the MCJROTC program.

The choral department at J.R. Tucker High School remains one of the best in the area. It continues to grow as the years progress. The students learn styles of music, musical theory, how to read and sight sing their pieces of music, correct use of their vocal mechanism, and the proper concert behavior. Each class serves a different purpose that helps in making the department successful.

Some of their goals include: playing all major scales, the chromatic scale, and the melodic minor scale; learning three-octave scales; performing music with complex meters and rhythms; sight reading Grade IV music; demonstrating a refined playing position and response to visual direction from the conductor; and performing in combination with other performing groups.
