The National Honor Society (NHS) is the nation's premier organization established to recognize outstanding high school students. More than just an honor roll, NHS serves to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, leadership, service, and character. These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since its beginning in 1921.
Scholarship – pride in the pursuit of knowledge
Service – concern for each other, the community, the nation, the world
Leadership – willingness to accept responsibility and to participate in
bettering what is and what will be by working with others
Character – looking within ourselves to explore and elevate personal goals
and commitments; citizenship is an essential part of character
