NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY
The National Honor Society is more than just an honor roll. The Honor Society chapter establishes rules for membership, service, leadership, and character. These criteria for selection form the foundation upon which the organization and its activities are built.
Scholarship: Students who have a cumulative grade point average of 85%, B, 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale), or an equivalent standard of excellence.
Service: This quality is defined through the voluntary contributions made by a student to the school or community, done without compensation
Leadership: Student leaders are those who are resourceful, good problem solvers, promoters of school activities, idea-contributors, dependable, and exemplify positive attitudes about life.
Character: The student of good character upholds principles of morality and ethics, is cooperative, demonstrates high standards of honesty, and shows courtesy and respect. Citizenship: The student who demonstrates citizenship understands the importance of civic involvement, has a high regard for freedom, justice, and democracy, and demonstrates mature participation and responsibility through involvement with such activities as scouting, community, and school clubs.
