The National Honor Society (NHS) is the nation’s premier organization established to recognize outstanding high school students. More than just an honor roll, NHS serves to recognize those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, service, leadership, and character. These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since its beginning in 1921.
Today, it is estimated that more than one million students participate in NHS activities. NHS chapters are found worldwide, from all 50 American states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico to many other U.S. territories, Canada, and international schools globally. Chapter membership not only recognizes students for their accomplishments, but challenges them to develop further through active involvement in school activities and community service.
At Manor Hall, the National Honor Society is an organization that recognizes and encourages academic achievement while also developing characteristics essential to become productive global citizens. Throughout their time in the honor society, students will complete individual service projects, group projects, and gain access to apply for a scholarship, as well as being recognized by their perspective colleges as a noted National Honor Society scholar.
