Membership in the National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) is one of the highest honors that can be awarded to a middle school student. Our chapter has worked hard to bring the accomplishments of outstanding students to the attention of parents, teachers, peers, and the community. Our chapter strives to give practical meaning to the Society’s standards of scholarship, service, leadership, character, and citizenship. These five ideals are considered as the basis for selection. 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 of these areas. The standards used for selection are:

Scholarship: Minimum 3.0 cumulative grade point average (GPA)
*3.0 GPA or higher must be maintained throughout 8th grade year*
Leadership, service, character, and citizenship: as demonstrated by activities and teacher evaluations

Membership, however, is more than an honor. It is an ongoing responsibility and an obligation to continue to demonstrate those outstanding qualities that result in a student’s selection. Membership also carries a responsibility to the chapter. If our NJHS chapter is to be effective and meaningful, each member must   

  •  become involved 
  •  Adhere to all rules and regulations outlined in MCPS Student Code of Conduct 
  •  Attend monthly meetings 
  •  Sign up for at least one of our committees:
    •  Beautification Committee 
    •  Mentoring Committee 
    •  Fundraising Committee 
    •  High School Readiness Committee 

 For questions regarding NJHS or the selection process, please email the NJHS adviser, Ms. Beru at  .
