The National Honor Society (NHS) is the nation’s premier organization established to recognize outstanding high school students. More than just an honor roll, NHS serves to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of Scholarship, Leadership, Service and Character. These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since their beginnings in 1921. Today, it is estimated that more than one million students participate in activities of the NHS. NHS 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.
Students may apply for membership in either their junior or senior year (suggested application period is junior year). Candidate Information Packets (application) are available in H65 during the fall semester (September). The process by which students are selected is based upon the four pillars of NHS: Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and Character. The minimum GPA a student must have in order to be eligible to apply for membership in the Palos Verdes Peninsula High School Chapter is an un-weighted cumulative one of 3.65 or higher with no unsatisfactory marks for citizenship.
