About NJHSThe National Junior Honor Society is the nation's premier organization established to recognize outstanding middle level (junior high level) students. More than just an honor roll, NJHS serves to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, service, leadership, character, and citizenship. These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since its beginning in 1929.
Today, it is estimated that more than one million students participate in official Honor Society activities. NHS and NJHS chapters are found in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, many U.S. territories, and Canada. Chapter membership not only recognizes students for their accomplishments, but challenges them to develop further through active involvement in school activities and community service.QualificationsEvery 7th and 8th grade student that earns a 3.50 GPA or higher on the 6-week progress report card for 1st trimester will receive an invitation to join the National Junior Honor Society. Students must maintain a GPA of 3.50 or above to stay in NJHS.Some of the NJHS events that members haven chosen to plan:
