National Junior Honor Society
The society recognizes, acknowledges and encourages high achievement in all academic pursuits, and engenders in students a sense of service. Membership is open to 8th grade students who meet the academic, character and leadership requirements, as well as in-school and out-of-school service activities requirements. To meet the academic criteria, students must have a final grade average of 93 on both their 6th and 7th grade report cards with no grade below an 86 in a major subject and no grade below "G" in an enrichment subject. Negative comments may exclude a student from consideration. These averages are based upon 6th and 7th grade final report card grades. Students must have no fewer than 13 service activities, with at least 7 in-school service credits. The students chosen for membership must maintain the standards for which they were selected.
