       The National Honor Society (NHS) is the nation's premier organization established to recognize outstanding high schools. More than just an honor roll, NHS serves to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of Character, Scholarship, Leadership, and Service. These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since their beginnings in 1921 and 1929. Four main purposes have guided chapters of NHS from the beginning: "To create enthusiasm for scholarship, to stimulate a desire to render service, to promote leadership, and to develop character in the students of secondary schools."  These purposes also translate into the criteria used for membership selection in each local chapter. 

      Chapmanville Regional High School requirements to be invited to join the NHS are:

 

  • Have at least a 3.50 GPA.

  • Students must not have more 2 Cs on their transcript prior to being inducted.

  • If a student is invited to join as a junior and chooses not apply, they will not be invited again as a senior, even if they meet all other criteria.

  • If a student is invited to join as a junior, applies, and is not accepted, they may apply again in their senior year if they are invited. 

 

      Chapmanville Regional High School requirements to maintain membership in the NHS are:

  • Maintain at least a 3.50 GPA.

  • Students must not receive a grade below a B in any class.  A single C on the trasncript wil constitute grounds for removal from the organization.

  • Students must participate in at least one service project per semester.

  • Any disciplanary action that results in in-school, out-of-school suspension, or expulsion will result in automatic removal from the organization.

 

CRHS National Honor Society students must be able to demonstrate their competency in four areas: Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and Character. 

Scholarship:
Students who have a cumulative grade point average of 85 percent, B, 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale) or equivalent standard of excellence, or a higher cumulative average set by the local school's Faculty Council, meet the scholarship requirement for membership. These students are then eligible for consideration on the basis of service, leadership, and character.
