National Junior Honor Society

The purpose of the National Junior Honor Society is to create enthusiasm for scholarship, to stimulate desire to render service, to promote leadership, to develop character, and to encourage citizenship. Students must complete a membership application submitted to the NJHS Review Committee on or before the required deadline each year. Seventh and eighth grade students who have a cumulative grade point average of 93 or higher, and who complete the membership application on or before the due date are considered for membership. Seventh grade members are inducted in the spring semester.
