National Junior Honor Society

Middle school students (grades 6-8) that have a 95% average in their core classes will be invited to apply for the National Junior Honor Society. Averages are calculated after the second marking period grades. The NJHS is primarily a service organization. Students that receive an application do not have to apply to be in the NJHS. We encourage students to really think about if they would be a good fit for the NJHS if they are accepted. Filling out an application does not guarantee acceptance. The application is lengthy and requires students to have a minimum total of 10 service hours in order to be considered for acceptance. Since it is a service club, students are expected to have developed good habits of giving back to the school or community prior to receiving the application. Students are typically given a month to complete the application. A panel of 4 teachers then reads each application and if students meet all criteria, they will be extended an invitation for membership. An induction ceremony takes place in the spring.
