National Honor Society


The National Honor Society (NHS) is an organization that recognizes outstanding achievements by high school students across the country. Students in the NHS are expected to display excellence in scholarship, leadership, service and character--characteristics that have been associated with the organizations since their inception in the 1920s.

Each chapter of NHS is governed by the national constitution of the organization, as well as by local bylaws of the chapter. The national constitution was developed by the National Council, the governing body of national NHS chapters, while routine activities of each chapter are regulated by national office staff.

In order to be a member of the National Honor Society, students must perform well across a variety of areas. All Niles High School NHS members must maintain a grade point average of 3.20. They must also perform acts of community service, demonstrate leadership ability, prove to be of good character and understand the concept of civic involvement. 11th and 12th graders are able to join this organization by submitting an application or by invitation.
