The National Honor Society Requirements

national_honor imageThe National Honor Society is a nationally affiliated organization established in 1921 for outstanding and distinguished high school students. Each chapter within the organization, as recognized by the National Council, establishes its rules for membership based on a student’s outstanding performance in the areas of scholarship, service, leadership, and character. These four components are the foundation for the organization.

In order to gain academic entry into the Douglas Byrd High School National Honor Society, a sophomore or junior must attain a minimum 3.7 (3.65) Weighted Grade Point Average. To maintain academic membership, a student must have a minimum 3.5 (3.45) Weighted Grade Point Average. If at any point a student’s Grade Point Average falls below a 3.45, then that student may be placed on academic probation. Additionally, if for any reason a student is placed on out of school suspension or expelled, that student may have their National Honor Society membership revoked.

“Finishing Strong”

To finish strong there must be a focus on the outcome or the prize.  There must be:

  • a strong determination to see it through
  • perseverance to stay on course
  • a willingness to commit

Parents of Seniors, encourage your graduate to finish the race, to engage online for their studies, and to obtain the prize (diploma). We are close to the end. Stay focus on the end goal. We at Douglas Byrd High School are confident that you can!!!!
