Students that attend a  JROTC school are required to wear the “blues” at least twice a month. Phoenix Military Academy wears this uniform three times a week. The blues could be worn with a class B sweater, a trench coat, windbreaker, or even a $95 peacoat. In my opinion, I believe that students shoul...

Filed under Phoenix Says, Sports

Athletes that attend Phoenix Military Academy High School are not allowed to join two different sports at the same time.
