NHS Honors & Awards

Academic Pin and Bars

At the start of each school year students in grades 9 – 12 who have earned a 3.500 grade point average BOTH semesters the year prior will be invited to the Fall academic ceremony.  The ceremony is hosted by the National Honor Society and the Student Advocates Office.  The first year a student receives the 3.500 for both semesters an academic pin is presented.  Each year after the student will receive a bar.  Grade point averages will not be rounded up.  The ceremony is usually the last Wednesday in August.


 

Honor Roll

At the end of each semester any student with a 3.250 or higher grade point average will be on the honor roll for the semester.  Grade point averages will not be rounded up.
