National Honor Society
London High School Chapter of the National Honor Society
Students do not apply for membership. Membership is an honor bestowed upon a student. After the chapter adviser receives a listing of students meeting the GPA requirement for consideration (95.0 or
higher), students will be notified and given an information form to complete within a certain time frame. After the deadline, the information forms, along with attendance and discipline records, are provided to
the Faculty Council, a 5-member committee made up of teachers who are chosen on an annual basis to represent the high school faculty in the selection process. Candidates for membership are selected by a
majority vote of the Faculty Council based on outstanding scholarship, outstanding character, outstanding leadership, and outstanding service. Once selected, the chapter adviser shall review with the principal the
results of the Faculty Council’s deliberations. Then, candidates will be notified of the results. Those selected must attend a special induction ceremony in order to attain membership status.
Once inducted, members have the responsibility to continue to demonstrate these outstanding qualities.
In order to be considered by the Faculty Council, candidates:
● Must have a high school cumulative grade point average of 95.0 or higher based on the collegiate scale. (No rounding.)
● Must have been students in London High School for the preceding semester for the entire semester.
● Must have a clear discipline record for the current and preceding year. Students wishing to be considered for NHS should know that as little as one disciplinary referral may cause them not to be allowed into this organization at their first eligibility. Therefore, students should strive to avoid any situation that would put them in violation of school rules, including absences, tardies, dress code infractions, being out of area, leaving campus without permission, lying, plagiarizing, cheating, stealing, etc., and anything resulting in Detention, In-School Suspension, and/or immediate Suspension from the campus. All disciplinary write-ups will be taken into consideration.
● Must have been exemplary role models in the areas of scholarship, character, leadership, and service. (On campus and off campus.)
Traditionally, in our NHS chapter, the induction process begins in July and culminates in the induction ceremony sometime in August, September, or October.
Besides the in-school and off-campus activities in which NHS members are involved, members meet monthly and also perform at least one chapter service project each semester and at least one individual service
project each semester. Therefore, in a typical year, members accrue at least 30 volunteer hours of service.
This is for informational purposes only--and to encourage you, if you aspire to become a member of our NHS chapter your sophomore, junior, or senior year, to do your best as an LHS student in the areas of scholarship, character, leadership, and service.
