NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY (NHS) AND NATIONAL JUNIOR HONOR SOCIETY (NJHS)
To be eligible for membership in the Drexel National Honor Society for grades 10 – 12 or the Drexel National Junior Honor Society for grades 7 – 9, a student must have at least a 3.5 cumulative grade point average (CGPA). The five member Faculty Council for each group determines membership after examining
information sheets completed by students who qualify academically
input from other faculty members.
For NHS membership, the positive qualities considered in addition to academics are character, leadership, and service. The same qualities plus citizenship are considered for NJHS membership.
A member must maintain the standards that were the basis for selection. NHS members are responsible for at least 8 hours of individual service activity for the school year, and NJHS must log at least 4 hours of individual service. If all standards are not met, the appropriate Faculty Council may place the student on probation or may dismiss the student from membership. The student has the right to a hearing before the appropriate Faculty Council. If dismissed a student must relinquish all NHS or NJHS insignia.
A transfer student may be granted membership by providing a letter proving membership in good standing from his or her former school.
The adviser for both groups is Judy Daniel.
