As you begin the early stages of greater independence and responsibility as a middle level student, you may discover that you excel in your studies, have an interest in leadership and service, and have a thirst for challenge and accomplishment.
Membership in the National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) may be an ideal fit for you! You can become a member through a local selection process that concludes with induction into the school’s National Junior Honor Society chapter.
Students in grades 7–9 who meet the requirements for membership outlined by our school chapter are eligible to be invited for membership.
The Dwight Global Chapter follows the five pillars of NJHS:
Scholarship: Per national guidelines, students must have a cumulative GPA of 85 %, or equivalent standard of excellence.
Service: This involves voluntary contributions made by a student to the school or community, done without compensation.
Leadership: Student leaders are those who are resourceful, good problem solvers, and idea contributors.
Character: The student of good character is cooperative; demonstrates high standards of honesty and reliability; shows courtesy, concern, and respect for others; and generally maintains a clean disciplinary record.
Citizenship: The student who demonstrates citizenship understands the importance of civic engagement; has a high regard for freedom and justice; respects democracy; respects the law for all citizens at the local, state, and federal levels.
