NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY
National Honor Society
The National Honor Society (NHS) is the nation's premier organization established to recognize outstanding high school students. More than just an honor roll, NHS serves to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, leadership, service, and character. These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since 1921.
Four main purposes of NHS:
to create enthusiasm for scholarship
to stimulate a desire to render service
to promote leadership
to develop character in the students of secondary schools.
Membership in the National Honor Society (NHS) is an honor bestowed upon a student in recognition of his or her academic diligence and noteworthy comportment. Selection is by a faculty council and is only for those students who achieve the necessary cumulative grade point average by the end of their sophomore year. Once selected and inducted, members have the responsibility to continue to demonstrate and uphold above-mentioned qualities.
What are the requirements for the National Honor Society? When is it decided?
Students in grade 11 who have a GPA of 3.8 or above at the end of the first semester or end of their junior year will be invited to apply for the National Honor Society. A meeting takes place by the end of February reviewing the application process for juniors who meet the criteria mid-school year.
