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.

Talking Rams (Speech and Debate)

The Ladue Horton Watkins High School chapter of the National Forensic League was chartered in the early 1950s to ensure that students of our community had access to the life-changing benefits of speech and debate. Since that time, our program has produced many state and national tournament qualifiers, multiple state and national tournament finalists and champions, and numerous Academic All Americans.

More importantly, our chapter has educated and trained a number of people who went on to become leaders in our community and nation. Among our chapter alumni are doctors, lawyers, businessmen and women, and educators. They all leave a legacy of which we remain proud.

Teens Against Child Trafficking

We are an organization that aims to solve the crisis of child trafficking through action and awareness. The promotion of both will ultimately create a better world for generations to come and finally shine a light on a problem that has been ignored for too long. 8.4 million children are in serious danger of malicious practices around the world, and we must do something to help. In the past we have:
Lobbied politicians, fundraised for the Polaris Project, interviewed experts, organized a social media awareness campaign, worked with national organizations such as the Human Trafficking Collaborative Network & the National Council of Jewish Women, and are currently leading the push to amend the Missouri Student Survey to include questions on interpersonal violence.

Meeting dates/times:
Every Monday at 2:30 pm over Zoom.

Together We Rise

Hey guys, this club Together We Rise (TWR) wants you to join! We are an organization that helps kids in foster care. We are a group that is a non-profit organization devoted to guiding youth through the foster care system in America. One of our most successful fundraisers from last school year was the MOD Pizza Fundraiser on December 5th. With every purchase, MOD Pizza allowed the customer to donate a part of the cost to our fundraiser. We also had a fundraiser during one of the parent-teacher conferences in March.  With all of the love and support offered by Ladue, our club was able to flourish last year. Now this year I am prepared to make this club better than it was last year. While giving hands-on help for the children (while following safety guidelines) from donating money to the organization and receiving packages to build and give to the children. I hope you choose this club to be a part of children’s lives.

Young Socialists

The Young Socialists club is a club devoted to studying socialism and supporting local and national socialist causes. We plan to read and discuss socialist literature each week throughout the year to arrive at a better understanding of the various schools of socialism. Additionally, Young Socialists will encourage student participation in social and political causes outside of school, such as electioneering. This will be done by both discussing such opportunities during meetings and holding group events where many of us participate in such events.
