GWUOHS National Honor Society
This is the nation’s premier organization for the recognition of outstanding high school students.
The National Honor Society is the premier organization established to recognize outstanding 11th and 12th grade high school students. The NHS is more than just good grades. It honors students who demonstrate excellence in Character, Leadership, Scholarship and Service.
To be considered for membership to the GWUOHS chapter of the National Honor Society, students must have at least 12 credits by the end of 10th grade and have a cumulative GPA of at least 3.33. To be inducted as a new member, students must have been enrolled with GWUOHS for at least one semester prior to the review process.
Candidates apply for membership and are voted on by the Faculty Council based on the leadership, experience, service, and character that students demonstrate on their application.
Once inducted, NHS members are expected to uphold high academic standards, attend regular meetings, and complete a chapter service project as well as an individual service project each year.
National Honor Society membership awarded by other schools will be recognized by the GWUOHS branch of the NHS.
