National Honor Society



The National Honor Society is an organization whose purpose is to create enthusiasm for scholarship, to promote leadership, to stimulate desire to render service, and to develop character in students of secondary schools.

Membership in the National Honor Society is both an honor and a responsibility. Students selected for membership are expected to continue to demonstrate the qualities of scholarship, leadership, service, and character; which are the basis for their selection. Every junior, whose cumulative average is B (88.0) or higher at the end of the fifth semester, is invited to submit an essay to express an interest in membership and to describe their qualifications for National Honor Society. Those juniors who have submitted essays are then considered on the basis of their leadership, service and character, and must exemplify those traits. Another round of selections occurs in the fall of the senior year based upon a cumulative average of B (88.0) or higher at the end of the sixth semester, as well as the other aforementioned criteria.
