National Honor Society

As stated in the 18th edition of the NHS Handbook, “When the National Honor Society was established by the National Association for Secondary School Principals (NASSP) in 1921, the principals involved hoped to create an organization that would recognize and encourage academic achievement while also developing other characteristics essential to citizens in a democracy. These ideals of scholarship, service, leadership, and character remain as relevant today as they were in 1921. In fact, as we prepare future leaders for global citizenship, the opportunity to support these ideals becomes even more important. Membership in NHS is both an honor and a commitment. It is this commitment that has helped shape the Honor Society’s reputation for excellence, making it a valued asset among administrators, faculty members, students, parents, and communities.”

The Monomoy Regional High School chapter of the National Honor Society consists of students in grades 11 and 12 who have been invited to apply for membership based on their outstanding academic achievement and whose applications have been thoroughly considered based upon the six pillars of character; trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, and citizenship, as well as their commitment to leadership and service.
