Who We Are: National Junior Honor Society, or NJHS is a worldwide organization that consists of middle school students around the country. Selection of members is based on five criteria: citizenship, service, leadership, scholarship and character. Members must maintain a high grade point average (the national minimum is 3.0 on a 4.0 scale) and become good citizens by participating in service projects. The NJHS requires students to serve the community, school, and/or other organizations.

    Our History:The National Junior Honor Society was founded in 1929 in the hopes of creating an organization that would recognize and encourage academic achievement while also developing other characteristics essential to citizens in a democracy. The ideals of scholarship, character, service, and citizenship remain as relevant today as they were in 1929. Through the NJHS chapter service activities and academic standards members maintain and extend the qualities that won them selection.
