National Junior Honor Society

Membership in the National Junior Honor Society is one of the highest honors that can be awarded to a middle school student. Seventh and eighth grade students are eligible for induction. Selection is based upon careful consideration of one’s scholarship, service, character, citizenship, and leadership. No student is inducted simply because of a high academic average. The National Junior Honor Society strives to recognize the total student; one who excels in all of these areas.
