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 their beginnings in 1921 and 1929.
Students who have a cumulative grade
point average a 3.65 (on a 4.0 scale) or equivalent standard
of excellence, or a higher cumulative average set by the
local school's Faculty Council, meet the scholarship requirement
for membership. These students are then eligible for consideration
on the basis of service,leadership, and character.
This quality is defined through the voluntary
contributions made by a student to the school or community,
done without compensation and with a positive, courteous,
and enthusiastic spirit.
Student leaders are those who are resourceful,
good problem solvers, promoters of school activities, idea-contributors,
dependable, and persons who exemplify positive attitudes about life.
Leadership experiences can be drawn from school or community activities
while working with or for others.
The student of good character upholds principles
of morality and ethics, is cooperative, demonstrates high standards of
honesty and reliability, shows courtesy, concern, and respect for others,
and generally maintains a good and clean lifestyle.
