Description: National Honor Society is the academic recognition organization of Circle High School.
Membership Requirements: Second semester sophomores and junior students are eligible for NHS if they have a GPA of 3.4 or higher. Students who meet this requirement may submit a Candidate Essay for membership. The students’ teachers will rate their leadership ability, as well as, service and character. Points will be awarded for those ratings and for the student’s say. Those who achieve a minimum of 75% and are approved by a five-member Faculty Council, will be awarded membership. In addition to maintaining at least a 3.4 GPA, NHS members are required to commit to a group service project and at least 15 hours per semester of other volunteer opportunities (i.e. tutoring). Outstanding scholarship, leadership, character, and service are the qualities of a National Honor Society member.
