National Honor Society is an organization dedicated to recognizing and rewarding students who demonstrate the four pillars of NHS.  The four pillars of National Honor Society are scholarship, leadership, service, and character.  NHS is open to students in grades 11 and 12. 

Chapter Activities

NHS recognizes the need to be active in the community.   National Honor Society is primarily a service organization.  Seniors are required to log 20 hours of volunteer work during the course of the school year.  Half of those must be school oriented projects.   NHS members typically help out at the Fall Family Festival, Belmont and Canterbury Haunted Houses, and the Bolduc Park Easter Egg Hunt.  Students help babysit at the town meeting every year.  Members serve as tutors and help out in BES, CES, and BMS classrooms.

NHS students participate in a wide variety of service projects in their communities and churh organizations.  When the principal gets a call from a community member who needs volunteers, NHS is there to help rake, wait on tables, or put on a winter clothing drive.

Selection Process

The selection process begins with scholarship. All juniors and seniors with a 92% GPA or higher are invited to join.  Once inducted into the society, members must maintain their 92% or higher GPA to be in good standing.  Interested students are required to write an essay and fill out an activity sheet listing their co-curricular interests, any leadership experience, and service projects they have participated in during their high school years. 

Faculty members evaluate the eligible students they know in the areas of leadership, service, and character. This knowledge comes from classroom experience, coaching experience, advisor-ships, and friendships.  It comes from time spent in the library and interaction in the cafeteria.

Finally, a five-member faculty committee appointed by the principal (and does not include the advisor) synthesize the information and vote on membership.
