"The National Junior Honor Society is the nation's premier organization established to recognize outstanding middle level students. More than just an honor roll, NJHS serves to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, service, leadership, character, and citizenship. These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since its beginning in 1929.
Five main purposes have guided chapters of NJHS from the beginning:
- to create enthusiasm for scholarship;
- to stimulate a desire to render service;
- to promote leadership;
- to encourage responsible citizenship;
- and to develop character in the students of secondary schools.
These purposes also translate into the criteria used for membership selection in each local chapter.”
Students will have an opportunity to be invited to part of this prestigious organization during the start of the 2nd semester. Students must obtain a 92 cumulative average from the 6th grade year and 1st semester of 7th grade to be initially considered.
