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 its beginning in 1921.
There are four main purposes of the NHS: "To create enthusiasm for scholarship, to stimulate a desire to render service, to promote leadership, and to develop character in the students of High Schools."
Eligibility to apply is by invitation only.
Selection of NHS members happens once a year !
10th/11th/12th grade students who maintain a 90.00 cumulative GPA at the end of the previous school year will be contacted by letter to apply for candidacy by filling out a form. New students must earn this GPA by the end of the first semester to become eligible.
Students should familiarize themselves with the NHS Chapter By-Laws before applying.
