As far as we know, there are several military schools that had been existed here in the United States. These military schools provide a high caliber of basic military educational training for the young learners in grade school and high school level of learning. Although, every military schools have their different approaches on how to teach the young learners with the basic about military education but still they are able to make it to the point that the young learners be academically educated and militarily trained. As well, these military schools is not only applicable for the young learner who have a desire to forego a higher military educational training in the different military academes for a military career but as well, this military schools are also applicable for the young individuals who just want to be educationally trained in a military way for personality building.

Although, it has been known that most of young learners in the military schools don’t usually forego a military career but it had been noticed that lately that most of the young learners in the military schools especially in Southland are very much incline to forego a higher military education program in the military academies in the country such as West point for the pursuant of a military career. This observation was based on the population rate of the enrollees in the different military academies. In which, it has been found out by the different that most of the enrollees in the different military academies comes from the different military schools in the country especially from the Southland.

The inclination of the young learners to pursue a military career comes from different reasons. Some are really incline to the military career because of the character change that it could offer which help them a lot to deal with their selves. As well, some really want to serve the country by protecting and defending the nation against any aspect that will endangered the peace and unity of the country. There are also some who pursued a military career because of financial reason. Since, pursuing a military career entails a lot of money and privileges in exchange with the dangers that they will undertake for the service they will be rendering to their country and to its people.

Here in the United States, it has been known as one of the good training grounds for military education because of the fact that there are several military schools that had been established. Usually, most of the military schools that had been established are available for learners who are going to take their elementary and high school educational learning phase for the purpose in preparing the young learners to be educational equip if they will be undertaking a higher military learning for the pursuant of a military career. But, it doesn’t mean that those individuals who will be undertaking a military education in the different military schools are required to forego a military career. Since, there are several parents who just enroll their children in the different military teen boarding school for the purpose of disciplining their child and be brought to become better individuals in the society.

With that aspect, it is quite clear that military school is not only for young individuals who are very much incline to pursue a military career but as well very much open to the learners to be shaped in order to become better individuals in the society with the character of loving the its own nation and be open to supporting the country by becoming a good asset on it. Aside of that also, it has been noted that based on the different military school testimonials that most of the learners who have undergone a military education in the military schools whether public or private high school and elementary that the learners had greatly attained success in their lives especially in the field of their career. No wonder that the learners from the different military schools and public school give much respect and honor to their military educational training. One of the aspect that they can show their great acknowledgement upon learning the military educational training is to proudly wear their military uniforms especially during their graduation day. But just recently, the Chardon High School military school forbid their students to wear their military uniforms because the school administrators wants to let them wear the traditional suite for graduation day.

With that opposition, discourages lots of learners in Chardon High school about their great expectation of their school. Despite that was the case, the school administrators are just hopeful that learners can accept their decisions and be joyful during their graduation day.
