Character, Scholarship, Leadership, Service
The National Honor Society 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 demonstrate excellence in the areas of character, scholarship, leadership, and service. These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since its beginning in 1921.
