National Junior Honor Society

The 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.

Today, it is estimated that more than one million students participate in official Honor Society activities. NHS and NJHS 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.

How to Join / Membership Requirements: 
Students are given invitations to apply to National Junior Honor Society in the spring. Invitations are based on a minimum cumulative average of 85. Once invited, students are evaluated by their personal statement, scholarship, service, leadership, character, and citizenship. A five member faculty panel evaluates students for induction into National Junior Honor Society.
Other Info: 
NJHS students sponsor service activities throughout the year. This year we conducted a blanket drive, we adopted a Salvation Army Christmas Angel, and sponsored the school spring dance.
