Established in 1929, the National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) is one of the nation's premier organization established to recognize outstanding middle level students. More than just an honor roll, NJHS serves to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of Scholarship, Leadership, Service, Character, and Citizenship.
In accordance with national standards set by NJHS, students will first qualify for an invitation through their demonstration of success in the area of scholarship. That means, students at the end of their 7th grade year, with a cumulative GPA of 3.6 on a 4 point scale will receive an invitation to fill out an application. Students will then fill out the application and give examples of their accomplishments in the remaining areas of Leadership, Service, Character, and Citizenship. Therefore, just because a student qualifies based on their cumulative GPA (scholarship), does not mean they will not automatically be inducted into the NJHS.
Today, it is estimated that more than one million students participate in activities of the NHS (High School) and NJHS (Middle School). NHS and NJHS chapters are found in all 50 states. Chapter membership not only recognizes students for their accomplishments, but challenges them to develop further through active involvement in school activities and community service.
The goal of NJHS is to build leaders in our community. We strive for excellence in all areas and uphold our pillars with pride. Some community service projects we have done In the past have included volunteering at the San Antonio Food Bank, providing Christmas gifts for families in need, and volunteering at our feeder elementary schools! In addition, outside of school, members must keep track of service hours throughout the year that reflect their service to the community!
All interested students must go through application at the beginning of the year.
