NHS

  • Meetings are held the 3rd Wednesday of each month @ 8:00 a.m. & 3:45 p.m. in Room 1011.

    In 1921, the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP) established the National

    Honor Society to recognize and encourage scholastically outstanding high school students. Its

    founders wanted to form a society modeled after Phi Beta Kappa, the undergraduate collegiate

    honor society.

    The National Honor Society stresses education as a total experience, emphasizing the promotion of

    scholarship, along with leadership, service, and character. Members are required to attend the

    chapter meetings (offered both before and after school), complete 10 hours of community service for

    each year of membership, maintain a 93 cumulative GPA, and uphold the high standards of NHS by

    remaining active in organizations and demonstrating positive leadership in all aspects of student life.

    The National Honor Society is one of the most widely recognized co­curricular student activities in

    American high schools. Furthermore, NHS awards yearly scholarships to outstanding graduating

    senior members of local chapters. The NASSP organized this program in 1945, and since then they

    have honored hundreds of deserving students with a total of more than $10 million.

    Currently the oldest, largest, and most prestigious school­based student recognition program in the

    country, the National Honor Society is considered the highest honor that can be bestowed upon

    students in secondary schools.
