National Junior Honor Society

The National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) elevates a school’s commitment to the values of scholarship, service, leadership, character, and citizenship. These five pillars have been associated with membership in the organization since its inception in 1929. NJHS is a student organization that consists of chapters in middle schools. Students in grades 6–9 who meet the requirements for membership are eligible to be invited for membership. Students must be in their second semester of sixth grade for consideration.
