National Honors Society
Open to: Membership by Invitation only: 10th – 12th Grade.
About: The National Honor Society (NHS) elevates a school’s commitment to the values of scholarship, service, leadership, and character. These four pillars have been associated with membership in the organization since its inception in 1921. Today, it is estimated that more than one million students participate in NHS activities. NHS chapters are found in all 50 states, US Territories, Canada, and around the world. Chapter membership not only recognizes students for their accomplishments, but challenges them to develop further through active involvements in school activities and community service. As such, NHS chapters and students are in schools that care not only about student achievement, but also community engagement.
