National Honor Society is a national organization designed to recognize outstanding students who have enriched their school communities. The organization focuses on four main traits and selected students must meet and maintain standards in each of these categories:
The purpose of National Honor Society shall be to create enthusiasm for scholarship, to stimulate a desire to render service, to promote leadership, and to develop character in the students at Gray Stone Day School. All Gray Stone students, including underclassmen, may participate in NHS service projects.
Juniors and seniors are eligible for membership in National Honor Society. Membership in Gray Stone’s chapter of NHS requires a minimum weighted GPA of 4.0 or higher, along with activities that demonstrate a strong commitment to leadership, character, and service. Eligible students will be notified during the fall semester. Upon notification, students will complete a Student Information Activity Form to be submitted to the Faculty Council for review. Students who show exemplary leadership, service, and character will be eligible for induction. The induction ceremony will take place in November.
All NHS members will participate in two service projects each year and will fulfill chapter requirements of ten service hours per semester: meet a need within the school or community; have the support of the administration and the faculty; be appropriate and educationally defensible; and be well planned, organized, and executed.
