NJHS is the nation’s premier organization established to recognize outstanding middle level students. Our goal is to encourage an enthusiasm for learning; to serve our community and school; to promote leadership; to encourage responsible citizenship; and to develop character in the students of HMS

 

 

Membership:

 

Membership decisions are made by the NJHS Faculty Council, a group of five teachers who are chosen by the principal and based on an accumulation of data provided by the school, teachers, and the applicants. To be considered for membership, a student must:

 

  • earn a cumulative GPA of at least 3.3
  • complete the candidate form and turn it in by the deadline posted (2022 date TBD)
  • receive positive recommendations from current teachers
  • have been a student at HMS for at least one semester
 

The faculty council judges Candidates based on four main criteria based on the pillars of National Junior Honor Society: Service, Leadership, Character, and Citizenship. The council will use the candidate form and teacher recommendations to then decide which candidates will become members. Candidates must receive a majority vote to be chosen as a member.

 
Expectations of Members:
 
Students must
  • follow all school rules - including avoiding plagiarism/cheating
  • attend 2 meetings per marking period IF they are not in the elective class
  • log 4 service hours per marking period
  • maintain a 3.3 GPA during their time in NJHS
  • attend and participate in chapter events and fundraisers
 
*Failure to meet these requirements could lead to probation and then a meeting with the faculty council.
