        NATIONAL JUNIOR HONOR SOCIETY

South Middle School participates in the National Junior Honor Society program to recognize the academic and civic accomplishments of our students. All inductees into the NJHS are selected on the basis of outstanding performance in all five criteria of scholarship, leadership, service, citizenship and character.

Students fulfill the Scholarship component for NJHS candidacy by attaining Honor Roll status for all marking terms in both 7th and 8th grades. Candidates must also achieve Maximum Honors once during their 7th and 8th grade terms. Due to the Citizenship component, an unsatisfactory conduct mark, or suspension from school may prevent a student from becoming a member of the NJHS. Requirements for the Service, Character and Leadership components are fulfilled during the second, third, and fourth terms of 8th grade. Additional information is available by calling Mrs. Michalik in the Guidance Office or our NJHS Advisor.
