Membership in the National Honor Society is based upon excellence in four areas: scholarship, leadership, service and character. Each category is judged independently. With Scholarship, there are standards in leadership, service and character, which are required. Leadership requirements include demonstration of leadership in school, as well as, outside of school. Service requirements include involvement in service projects since the start of a student's high school career. Character requirements include integrity, positive behavior, ethics, cooperation, reliability in and out of the school and classroom maturity.
