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 recognize those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, leadership, service, and character.


How do you become a member of NHS?


You excel. You serve. You lead. You succeed. You have a true thirst for challenge and accomplishment. You can become a member through an internal selection process that concludes with induction into the school's National Honor Society chapter. The selection and subsequent invitation to join NHS is determined by your GPA and an interview with the current committee.


The four pillars of the National Honors Society are:


 Scholarship

  • Per national guidelines, at a minimum, students must have a cumulative GPA 3.0 on a 4.0 scale, or equivalent standard of excellence. (Each school chapter is allowed to require a higher cumulative GPA.)

Service

  • This involves voluntary contributions made by a student to the school or community, done without compensation.


Leadership

  • Student leaders are those who are resourceful, good problem solvers, and idea contributors. Leadership experiences can be drawn from school or community activities while working with or for others.

Character

  • The student of good character is cooperative; demonstrates high standards of honesty and reliability; shows courtesy, concern, and respect for others; and generally maintains a clean disciplinary record.
