National Honor Society

Advisor: Mr. J. McHugh

Meetings: Wednesdays in room 503 as announced.

The National Honor Society’s purpose is to create enthusiasm for scholarship, to stimulate a desire to render service, to promote leadership, and to develop character in the students of secondary schools.

Membership in the National Honor Society (NHS) is bestowed upon a student. Selection for membership is by a Faculty Council and is based upon outstanding scholarship, character, leadership, and service. The selection process takes place twice a year: in the fall and the spring. Students with a weighted GPA of 91.5 are invited to submit their Student Information Sheet along with faculty evaluations for consideration by the Faculty Council. The fall selection process begins in September and is for seniors, and the spring selection begins in February for both juniors and seniors.

The NHS Chapter projects are a tutoring program in the middle school and a peer tutoring in the high school. Along with these projects, the NHS student also continues his/her own service projects in the community.

Honor Society members are currently participating in a program called study buddies, where they tutor elementary school children and teach them how to study. NHS members also participate in peer tutoring in the High School.
