As noted on the National Junior Honor Society website, the NJHS is the nation's premier organization established to recognize outstanding middle school students who demonstrate excellence in Scholarship, Leadership, Service, Character, and Citizenship. Chapter membership not only recognizes students for their accomplishments, but, through monthly meetings, it challenges them to continue to develop through regular involvement in school activities and community service.
NJHS members in 8th and 9th grades will also have the opportunity to participate in a bi-annual trip (even years only) to our Nation's Capital to see the sights and sounds of our country's history and government in action. This trip to Washington, DC, is a fun-filled educational experience that students will cherish for a lifetime. Students are encouraged to start fundraising as soon as they commit to the trip. School sponsored fundraisers will also be held to offset the cost of the trip.
To be considered for membership, students must have attended JICMS for at least one semester or have a letter of recommendation as a current NJHS member in good standing from their previous school. Following the 1st and 3rd Quarters, the selection process for our NJHS inductees will begin. Here is the process by which students are selected for membership into the National Junior Honor Society. Students are invited to seek admission into the National Junior Honor Society based upon at least a 3.5 grade point average (GPA), teacher nominations, and exemplary behavior. The process of selection is as follows:
