National Junior Honor Society

NJHS LogoThe National Junior Honor Society is the nation's premier organization established to recognize outstanding middle-level students. More than just an honor roll, NJHS serves to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, service, leadership, character, and citizenship. These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since its beginning in 1929.

Membership in a local chapter of the National Junior Honor Society is an honor bestowed upon a student. Selection for membership is by a faculty council and is based on outstanding SCHOLARSHIP, CHARACTER, LEADERSHIP, SERVICE, AND CITIZENSHIP. Once selected, members have the responsibility to continue to demonstrate these qualities.
