The National Honor Society is a national organization which recognizes outstanding scholarship, leadership, character, and service. Students who meet the rigorous standards are offered membership during their junior year.
NHS selection procedure
Membership in the National Honor Society is a privilege, not a right. Students do not apply for membership in the National Honor Society; rather, they provide information to be used by the National Honor Society Faculty Council to support their candidacy for membership. Selection to the National Honor Society is based on four criteria: scholarship, leadership, character and service.
During the third quarter, sophomores and juniors attaining a cumulative GPA of 4.0 receive a letter regarding their scholastic eligibility for membership. There will be a mandatory meeting for all students who received a letter. At the meeting, students will receive a Student Activity Form that must be submitted by the deadline; they will also receive guided instruction on how to complete these forms. No forms will be accepted after the deadline.
Faculty and administration evaluate students on their service, character and leadership, and the National Honor Society Faculty Council will review all evaluations and select students for membership. Membership in National Honor Society is not automatically granted to all students with academic eligibility. Faculty Council also considers students’ disciplinary and attendance records. The components of leadership, character and service are equally important.
Students will be notified by mail of the selection decision. Students who are selected to National Honor Society will receive information about the induction ceremony and the obligations of membership in NHS. Students not selected, will also be notified by mail.
