National Honor Society

  • Welcome to NHS!

    The National Honor Society (NHS) is a nationwide organization for high school students in the United States and outlying territories, which consists of many chapters in high schools.

    Selection is based on four criteria: scholarship (academic achievement), leadership, service, and character. The National Honor Society requires some sort of service to the community, school, or other organizations. The time spent working on these projects contributes towards the monthly service hour requirement. The National Honor Society was founded in 1921 by the National Association of Secondary School Principals. The Alpha chapter of NHS was founded at Fifth Avenue High School by Principal Edward S. Rynearson in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

    At Walton High School, membership in NHS is limited to 12th grade students who have a cumulative GPA of 3.80 (or higher, weighted) who have met the additional requirements for membership based on their disciplinary record while in high school, their demonstrated leadership (on campus AND in the community), and participated in organized service opportunities. The selection process begins in spring of the students' 11th grade year, meaning the 3.80 GPA must be earned by the end of fall semester junior year.
