National Honor Society
Membership in the National Honor Society is honorary and is granted to those students selected by the National Honor Society Faculty Council according to the following procedures.
Each year after the first semester grade point average has been determined, the names of all sophomores and Juniors who have a 3.8 or better cumulative grade point average will be compiled on a list. These students will be notified that they are scholastically eligible for selection to the Ladue Chapter of the National Honor Society. For further consideration for membership, eligible students must complete a Student Activity Form and turn it in to the National Honor Society sponsor by a designated date. On the Student Activity Form, students provide information that the NHS Faculty Council uses to judge the applicants in the areas of service, leadership, and character, qualities that students must also demonstrate, in addition to the grade point average, in order to qualify for acceptance into the Society.
To meet the service requirement, a student must be active in service projects in the school and in the community. A service project shall be defined as a project that is primarily beneficial to the well being of a person or persons other than the participant. School activities, such as 6th Grade Homework Club, Elements, or Dance Marathon, qualify as school service projects. A student’s leadership qualities will be judged on his/her participation and promotion of school and community activities, or his/her exercise of a positive influence on peers in upholding school ideals in the classroom, at work, or in school activities.
A student’s character is measured in terms of integrity, behavior, ethics, cooperation with both students and faculty, and compliance with school regulations and rules.
A list of eligible candidates will be submitted to the entire faculty for their recommendation on the service, leadership, and character qualities. A scale of one to five will be used to evaluate the students, with five being the highest rating. The faculty recommendation will be totaled and averaged. The resulting score is advisory for the NHS Faculty Council, but is in no way binding. The faculty total will be reviewed by the NHS Faculty Council, a group of teachers appointed by the principal, along with the Student Activity Forms. Following this review, each NHS Faculty Council member will vote on the applicants. Students chosen for membership by the NHS Council will be notified by mail of their selection by the first week in April.
Members who would have been inducted into the National Honor Society in the Spring will be mailed a certificate this Fall.
We will have officer elections soon.
