Air Force JROTC
John Jay High School is well known in JROTCs across the country for their Varsity Drill Team, the 'Silver Eagles'. The Silver Eagles are an armed drill team that compete at JROTC drill meets both locally, state-wide, as well as on a national level. In 2012 they placed first overall in the masters armed division of the competition, their first time in ten years.
Student Locator Project
On October 1, 2012, the high school and Anson Jones Middle School began the controversial "Student Locator Project." Students were required to wear school IDs that were embedded with RFID microchips at all times. Student Andrea Hernandez was suspended from the school for refusing to wear the badge for religious reasons, linking it to the "mark of the beast" in the biblical book of Revelation. The Rutherford Institute filed a suit on behalf of Hernandez, and on November 21, 2012, a judge tentatively blocked the suspension. Hernandez was expelled from the school in January 2013. In July 2013, she was allowed to re-enter the school which had abandoned the RFID project.
