REQUIREMENTS
 

At the end of April of the 7th-grade year, candidates are invited to join NJHS.  In order to receive an invitation, you must meet the Scholarship (maintained a 90% average for all your classes/electives, an 80% average for all Pre-AP/Advanced classes, for the 1st - 5th six-week grading periods) and Character requirements (never received ISS and maintained a 90 or above in conduct for the 1st - 5th six-week grading periods).

 

After meeting these first two requirements, students who qualify will then be evaluated by each of their teachers using a 0-5 scale in each of the following areas: citizenship, service, leadership, character.  Students who have a 16 average or higher will be inducted into the National Junior Honor Society.  Please Note: Grades alone do not guarantee membership in NJHS.  Each student must also have a 16 average or higher from the teachers and staff to become a member.

 

Official membership into the SMS NJHS happens when you pay your $15 dues and attend the Induction Ceremony in May.  Until this ceremony and after this ceremony, you are expected to continually uphold the qualities of an NJHS member which are: Scholarship, Character, Service, Leadership, and Citizenship.
