What is National Honor Society?
The National Honor Society (NHS) is the nation’s premier organization established to recognize outstanding high school students. More than just an honor roll, NHS serves to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of Scholarship, Leadership, Service and Character.
In order to be approved for membership into the Beta Omega Chapter of the National Honor Society at Manasquan High School, qualified sophomores and juniors must have a cumulative grade point average of 93 or higher and are notified of their eligibility in the Spring semester. A Parent Information Night and mandatory Student Workshop are then offered so that the application process is clear for the candidates and their guardians. Each candidate must then provide character references as well as documented evidence of leadership and service hours in the school and community. This information is submitted through the application packet as a portfolio in the beginning of the Fall semester and reviewed by Faculty Council. Candidates that have met all the necessary requirements are notified of their acceptance and inducted in the Fall semester.
Throughout the year, NHS members serve as peer tutors, raise funds for charities, undertake special projects in the school and community, and host the Senior Academic Awards Program. Members must maintain a grade point average of 93 in order to remain in good standing and participate in scheduled activities, including monthly service hours and meetings. Meetings are held once a month on the first Friday at 7:00 a.m.
