National Honor Society

About National Honor Society

National Honor Society (NHS) is an organization devoted to acknowledging high school students who have excelled in four characteristics during their high school years. These four characteristics are Leadership, Service, Character, and Scholarship. NHS members make every effort to work for the betterment of their community.

Every high school that is part of NHS has its own set of rules and standards that are laid down by its advisors. In addition, each state that has schools that are part of NHS has a state board and state advisors. The job of the state advisors is to make sure that each school follows the national charter of the National Honor Society.

Any student who is a candidate for the Southwestern Educational Society of NHS must have attained an unweighted GPA of 3.33 in their sophomore or junior year. Secondly, they must exhibit outstanding leadership qualities, character, and service during their years in high school. Selection is a privilege not a right.

Once the student has become a member, they must retain their GPA and attend all NHS meetings as well as complete a service requirement during the school year.

SESO is part of this organization and is an honor, a recognition of our students achievements and a commitment to continue their excellence.
