The National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) serves to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and Character (and Citizenship for NJHS). Furthermore, NJHS prepares students for participation in NHS at High School and participation within their school community. Membership is determined based on character, academics, and teacher recommendations.
Students are selected for the NJHS based upon progress reports toward the end of the 3rd quarter in 7th grade. Selected students are then a member for the rest of 7th grade and all of 8th grade, contingent upon grades and behavior during that timeframe.
