The National Honor Society (NHS) is a nationwide organization for high school students. NHS elevates a school’s commitment to the values of scholarship, service, leadership, and character. These four pillars have been associated with membership in the organization since its inception in 1921. HS chapters and students are in schools that care not only about student achievement, but also community engagement. NHS students and their peers volunteer in their communities at the highest rates and make connecting with and serving within the community a priority. NHS members are not only active in the community but also assist with activities at the school. Requirements to become an NHS member can be found in the student handbook.
