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, service, leadership, and character. These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since its beginning in 1921.
The National Honor Society Chapter of Ocean Township High School is a duly chartered and affiliated chapter of this prestigious national organization. Membership is open to junior students who meet the required standard in all four areas of evaluation: scholarship, character, leadership and service. Standards for selection are established by the national office of NHS and have been revised to meet our local chapter. A Faculty Council, appointed by the principal, selects students for membership.
