The National Honor Society was established in 1921 to recognize outstanding high school students.  More than just an honor roll, NHS honors students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of Scholarship, Leadership, Service and Character.  There are more than a thousand chapters across the country:

“To create enthusiasm for scholarship, to stimulate a desire to render service, to promote leadership, and to develop character in the students of secondary schools.”

Membership is by invitation.  Students in their second semester of their junior and senior years are sent a letter from NHS with an invitation to apply for membership.  The application involves a resume and essay.

 In Weston, students are invited to apply for membership in the National Honor Society midway through junior year and again in the fall of senior year. Students who meet the academic requirements will be invited to apply.

Students who have earned the required GPA, shown leadership skills, demonstrated a strong commitment to service work, and shown themselves to be of outstanding character will be invited to participate as members of the NHS.

To demonstrate community service during High School students must have performed:

  • a total of at least 30 hours of community service, and
  • at least five hours of community service in each of two different years.

Further details about membership in the National Honor Society are included in the Student-Parent Handbook.  Please scroll to page 44.

* Beginning with the Class of 2023, there will be only an unweighted GPA.
