Mountain View High School in Bend is losing its Naval Science Program. The Navy requires schools with more than 1000 students to have at least 100 cadets enrolled in the program. For the last several years, Mt. View's has been around 65 students. Niels Farner is the school's Naval Science instructor. “The biggest factor that students coming into high school don't have as many elective choices as they used to have. Once you fill up your core requirements and look down that list of electives, and you see Naval Science, it’s a pretty tough class to take for your elective.” Now La Pine and Crook County High Schools are the only ones in Central Oregon with Naval Junior ROTC programs.
