The National Honor Society (NHS)
and National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) are the nation's premier
organizations established to recognize outstanding high school and
middle level students. More than just an honor roll, NHS and NJHS serve
to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of
Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and Character (and Citizenship for
NJHS). These characteristics have been associated with membership in the
organization since their beginnings in 1921 and 1929.
