The National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) is the nation’s premier organization established to recognize outstanding middle level students. More than just an honor roll, NJHS serves to honor those students who demonstrate excellence in the areas of Scholarship, Leadership, Service, Citizenship and Character.
What are our Values?
One of the values of NJHS is that students are actively involved in their community. Some ideas for service are: church groups, youth theatre, scouting, elementary schools, City of Bellevue youth groups, Humane Society, or Kelsey Creek Farm.
What to Expect?
Students are expected to participate in community service activities (minimum of 10 hours a year), serve as leaders for the school, perform individual volunteer work and maintain their grade point average.
Students can include any service from the start of the school year and some complete community service without realizing it – cleaning up the neighborhood, helping a teacher during tutorial, etc.
