National Honor Society Member
The National Honor Society (NHS) membership is invitation-only and a specific honor, that only a few schools in the UAE have been invited to be a part of. This internationally recognized organization is established to recognize outstanding high school students and celebrate their achievements.
NIS affiliation is a confirmation of students’ academic accomplishments, as well as community engagement. The National Honor Society (NHS) gives students exclusive resources that support their long-term goals. Students develop through active involvement in school activities and community service – they volunteer and make serving within their community a priority.
The National Honor Society (NHS) elevates a school’s commitment to the values of scholarship, service, leadership, and character. These four pillars have been associated with membership in the organization since its inception in 1921, when the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP) officially established the NHS.
Four main purposes that guide members of The National Honor Society (NHS):
Everyday Scholarship is a commitment to learning and growing on an academic path. Honor Society students are encouraged to make the most of the educational opportunities and seek building on knowledge, skills, and talents through new experiences.
Everyday Service is a commitment to engaging in meaningful voluntary service and a desire to help others. Honor Society students say that service activities are among their most rewarding experiences in the program.
Everyday Leadership is a commitment to carrying yourself with dignity and taking responsibility for your actions and participation. It means taking ownership of your pathway, not being a public speaker or soccer captain.
Everyday Character is a commitment to ethical decision making that demonstrates high standards of honesty and reliability. Honor Society students show good and noble character like valuing diversity, perseverance, respect, integrity, honesty, sacrifice, etc.
More than one million students participate in The National Honor Society (NHS) activities. Members are found in all 50 USA states, Canada, areas of Asia, and the Middle East. They can further be found in international and American schools throughout the world.
