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 honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and Character (and Citizenship for NJHS). These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since its beginnings in 1921.
NHS membership not only recognizes students for their accomplishments, but challenges them to develop further through active involvement in school activities and community service.
Membership is open to students in grades 10-12 and is based upon the student’s record in scholarship (minimum cumulative GPA of 3.75), service, leadership and character.
