The National Honor Society extends membership opportunities to candidates on the basis of the student's academic achievement, leadership skills, service to school and community and personal character. Selection for membership is based on scholarship, exemplary character and outstanding leadership and service. To be eligible for membership, the candidate must have spent one semester in Unity High School, must have completed 3 semesters of high school and have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.5 and be in the top 20% of his/her class. Based on these evaluations, a faculty council approved by the principal makes final selection for membership. Once selected, members must continue to demonstrate the qualities for which they were selected.
