National Honor Society
National Honor Society Membership Procedure
The National Honor Society (NHS) is a FACULTY CONFERRED HONOR. In December of the school year, all students who meet eligibility requirements will be notified.
Scholarship and Service: Any student meeting the minimum required grade point average and required number of service hours is eligible for consideration as an inductee of the NHS by the faculty Committee.
Eligibility Requirements: Be a current junior or senior; maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.25 or better; complete the required service hours (80 for juniors, 120 for seniors)
Students must complete an information sheet if they wish to move forward in the NHS membership selection process.
Leadership and Character: The faculty committee will be an anonymous group of five members selected by the NHS moderator. The faculty committee discusses all eligible students to determine which, in their opinion, are exemplary in Leadership and Character based upon observations and experiences with each candidate in the classroom, on the field, during school activities, events and a review of students disciplinary and attendance records. The NHS moderator facilitates the process but has no vote in selection of inductees. The principal is not involved in the selection process or in voting.
The Faculty Committee determines which eligible students are accepted into the NHS using these criteria:
- Demonstrated exemplary leadership in the classroom, on the field, in school activities or events;
- Consistent evidence of excellent character in the classroom, on the field, in school activities or events.
Selected NHS students will be notified in writing whether they are selected or not. New members will be inducted during 3rd quarter.
NHS Non-selection is not a disgrace, but rather an opportunity for students to demonstrate growth and maintain eligibility before they are re-considered for eligibility/selection the following year.
