Activity Description

  • 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.

Eligibility

  • Sophomores and Juniors in the top 20% of their classes are encouraged to apply to NHS.

Meeting Times

  • NHS holds a general meeting on a monthly basis, but does not have a set day/date.

    We also come together for numerous service projects and social events that are promoted via 2nd period announcements, email,  and social media.

How Do I Join?

  • All prospective members interested in joining should listen for announcements made early in 2nd semester.  The report identifying all eligible Sophomores and Juniors is posted in the 152 social studies area of school. All eligible students are encouraged to apply for induction into National Honor Society. 

    Eligible students are required to complete an application.  A committee reviews the applications, and students are notified of whether they are to be inducted into NHS by the beginning of March.

    During Freshman year we hold a meeting during ACCESS explaining the application process and advice for your applications. We also hold a meeting for Sophomores and Juniors regarding the application process during the application window.
