Membership in the National Junior Honor Society is one of the highest honors that can be awarded to a Junior High School student.  The NJHS has worked to bring the accomplishments of outstanding students to the attention of parents, teachers, peers, and community.  Chapters in more than 22,000 schools across the nation strive to give practical meaning to the Society's goals of scholarship, service, leadership, and character.

These four ideals have been considered as the basis for selection of members in the NJHS.  No student is inducted simply because of a high academic average.  The National Junior Honor Society strives to recognize the total student; one who excels in all these areas.  The standards used for membership selection were:
Scholarship - a 3.5 or higher grade point average.
Leadership - as demonstrated by at least two activities.
Service - as demonstrated by volunteering in the community.
Character - as demonstrated by teacher recommendations.
Membership, however, is more than an honor.  It carries with it more than certain privileges.  It incurs a responsibility and an obligation to continue to demonstrate those outstanding qualities that resulted in membership selection.
