NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY
Selection to the National Honor Society (NHS) is a privilege, not a right. Students do not apply for membership in NHS; instead they provide information to be used by the local selection committee to support their candidacy for membership. Membership is granted only to those students selected by the Faculty Council. This is not an election, nor is membership automatically conveyed simply because a student has achieved a specified level of academic performance. Criteria to be considered for selection to NHS is listed below.Only those students who attended the school the equivalent of one trimester may be considered for membership. This period is necessary for students to establish themselves and for the faculty to get to know them.Membership is open to Juniors and Seniors.Scholarship: Required cumulative grade point average of 3.5 or higher.Leadership: Leadership criterion is considered highly important for membership selection. Leadership roles in both the school and community may be considered, provided they can be verified.Service: Those actions undertaken by the student which are done with or on behalf of others without any direct financial or material compensation to the individual performing the service.Character: A person of character demonstrates the following six qualities: respect, responsibility, trustworthiness, fairness, caring and citizenship.Student Activity Forms: Must be received by the appropriate deadline.
