Membership in the National Honor Society has become recognized nationally as one of the highest honors that can be bestowed upon a high school student. Membership, however, is more than an honor; it carries with it a responsibility and should be considered the beginning of an obligation, not merely the successful culmination of an effort to achieve recognition and honor.
Members are selected from grades eleven and twelve.
Grades for the grading period immediately preceding the induction must average 4.50 on the weighted grade-point system. Then an over-all average beginning with the ninth grade must be 4.50, also on the weighted grade-point system. Students are then selected by a faculty committee on the basis of character, scholarship, leadership, and service.
A student shall be ineligible if he or she, in either the previous or current semester, has acquired more than 10 days of detention, has been assigned to an alternative education program (Guidance Center or Community Education Partners (C.E.P.), Partnership School), Saturday Guidance Center, ISC, suspended or expelled.
Once a member, the student must maintain a 4.50 grade-point average.
