National Honor Society

"Whoever claims to be noble must conduct himself nobly."

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. 

Today, it is estimated that more than one million students participate in NHS activities. NHS chapters are found in all 50 states, US Territories, Canada, and around the world. Chapter membership not only recognizes students for their accomplishments, but challenges them to develop further through active involvement in school activities and community service.

As such, NHS chapters and students are in schools that care not only about student achievement, but also community engagement.

NHS students and their peers volunteer in their communities at the highest rates and make connecting with and serving within the community a priority. The average chapter contributes:

  • 1,000 hours of school/community service
  • $26,000 in charitable donations
  • 1,000 pounds of food to local, state, and national causes
  • 100 pints of blood

Our local chapter at Daleville High School is very active and requires community service hours to be completed yearly in addition to maintaining a high GPA and a reputation of integrity that reflects the values of the NHS.

Induction ceremonies take place once a year. Students who have been members of NHS at other schools can transfer their membership as long as they maintain the expectations of the local chapter.
