National Honor Society
The National Honor Society is an organization that recognizes and honors outstanding students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, leadership, service, and character.

Membership in the West Haven High School Chapter of the National Honor Society is offered to students who exhibit the qualities of scholarship, character, leadership, and service.  Junior and senior students who have been enrolled in, and successfully completed an honors course each year, and have achieved a 3.5 cumulative G.P.A. are eligible to apply.  Each academically qualified candidate is then evaluated on the basis of service, leadership, and character.  Examples of character include honesty, respect and adherence to rules inside and outside of school, courtesy, empathy and respect for others, and the ability to overcome setbacks.  Having a positive influence in the classroom, demonstrating the value of academic pursuits, and serving as a positive role model are some examples of leadership qualities.  The service requirement is demonstrated through school activities such as peer tutoring or advocacy, teacher assistant, or participation in athletics, clubs and organized activities.  Community examples include Scouts, WHEAT, Community House, civic organizations and house of worship activities.   An individualized service project (fulfilling 30 service hours) is encouraged following acceptance and induction into the National Honor Society.
There will be a meeting on Monday, November 28th after school in the cafeteria for all eligible candidates. 

Applications are due by 10:00 a.m. Monday, December 12th.  Late applications will not be accepted!
