National Honor Society

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 recognize 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.

Current NHS members:

*Do not submit a new application if you are already a member of the NHS (inducted last year). The requirement for continuing your NHS membership is met by maintaining the 3.5 GPA and earning an additional 10 service hours (since the time of induction last year), by February 1st, and submit them in a google form posted on the NHS Google Classroom page.
