National Honor Society

National Honor SocietyThe 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 recognize those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, service, leadership and character. These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since its beginning in 1921.

NHS membership not only recognizes students for their accomplishments but challenges them to develop further through active involvement in school activities and community service.

Membership Requirements

The North Hills High School Chapter of the NNS is open to incoming juniors and seniors who:

  • have a GPA of 3.85 or higher
  • show evidence of leadership in school or non-school-related activities
  • have earned 10 community service hours in the past 12 months

Selection Process

Applications are evaluated by a 5-member teacher/staff committee selected by the principal. The NHS advisor is not part of this committee.

Applicants must receive a majority vote by the faculty advisory committee to be offered membership in NHS.
