Honor Club & National Honor Society

Advisor: Eric Smith

National Honor Society logoThe National Honor Society (NHS) was established in 1921 and 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, along with a cumulative GPA of 3.8 or above.  These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since its beginning in 1921 and 1929.

Today, it is estimated that more than one million students participate in activities of the NHS. NHS chapters are found in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, many U.S. Territories, and Canada. Chapter membership not only recognizes students for their accomplishments, but challenges them to develop further through active involvement in school activities and community service.

Students are eligible for Honor Club in their freshman year if their cumulative GPA for the previous five marking periods is a 3.4 or higher. Students maintain eligibility for Honor Club as sophomores, juniors, and seniors by calculating the prior six marking period grades. If their GPA is a 3.4 or higher, they become or remain eligible for Honor Club membership.
