Military Information

Each week, different branches of military set up tables outside the cafeteria to speak with our students during lunch.  This is a great way to start the conversation.  Our military is present at our Family Fun Night, administers the ASVAB test for career readiness, and helps our school community in meaningful ways

What is the ASVAB test?  The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery is the most widely used multiple-aptitude test battery in the world.  As an aptitude test, the ASVAB measures your strengths, weaknesses, and potential for future success.  The ASVAB also provides you with career information for various civilian and military occupations and is an indicator for success in future endeavors whether you choose to go to college, vocational school, or a military career.

If you are interested in exploring the military, speak with your school counselor or the main office to get the lunchtime visit calendar.  WBHS students proudly represent us in all military branches, as ROTC students, and at service academies, including West Point.
