The National Honor Society (NHS) elevates a school’s commitment to the values of scholarship, service, leadership, and character. These four pillars have been associated with membership in the organization since its inception in 1921.
NHS recognizes students that demonstrate the values of scholarship, service, leadership, and character. These students receive an invitation once they attain a cumulative 3.5 GPA with high school credits. To be nominated for NHS students must complete an application that is voted on by a faculty council comprised of 5 senior teachers. Once nominated by the faculty council the students are inducted in a formal ceremony in March.
NHS students can participate in one of three committees: School Service, Community Service, or Chapter Service. These committees teach students leadership and enhance their service to the school, community, or chapter.
