National Honor Society
National Honor Society
is an organization that acknowledges exceptional students throughout our school centered around students that demonstrate the four pillars of the national organization: scholarship, leadership, service, and character. The following are required to be accepted into NHS:
- Scholarship: A 3.5 GPA by the 3rd block of your sophomore/junior year. (Rigor of classes are evaluated)
- Service: A minimum of 25 community service hours (unpaid volunteer service to a non-profit organization in the local community). Hours must be documented by an official from the organization served.
- Leadership: Well written essay about the leadership activities you are involved in (with a minimum of 2 activities for a year or more).
- Character: An excellent evaluation from 1 teacher, 1 principal, and your ZAP adviser.
After the 3rd block of student's sophomore and junior year students that have a 3.5 GPA will be given the opportunity to APPLY for membership. Applications will be delivered to these students, however, if you do not receive on please come by Mrs. Brace's office and check on your official standing.
Meetings are held the 2nd Friday each month during encore in the Library.
To remain in NHS, you must obtain 10 hours of community service that meets the national requirements, 10 in club hours from events that are hosted by the club, maintain your 3.5 GPA and attend monthly meetings. If by the end of that year you do not have enough hours or have missed more than 2 meetings you will loose your standing as a NHS member. Although, you may re-apply as a junior. NHS is a highly respected organization and its members will need to act accordingly. National Honor Society is for those that meet ALL the standards of the national organization; it is NOT an honor roll achieved with just your GPA.
