National Junior Honor Society

Membership in the National Junior Honor Society is by invitation only and is based on these five qualities: scholarship, service, leadership, citizenship, and character. To be eligible for consideration, a student must be in the seventh or eighth grade, be enrolled at the beginning of the school year, and have completed at least one full semester at Parkview Middle School. Sixth graders are not eligible. A seventh or eighth grader must have a 3.6 (grades are not rounded) overall cumulative semester grade point average at the end of the 1st semester. If a student feels that he/she is eligible, an NJHS membership application should be completed and turned in no later than the end of the 3rd nine-week grading period.

Once eligible scholastically, a faculty council then evaluates each student based on the criteria described in the National NJHS Handbook – service, leadership, citizenship, and character. Students selected are notified during a tapping ceremony which is held during a school assembly. Candidates are inducted to membership during an evening ceremony.
