National Honor Society

The National Honor Society (NHS) is the nation's premier organization established to recognize outstanding high school and students.

More than just an honor roll, NHS serves to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and Character. These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since its beginning in 1921.

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

Chartered in 1998, the Park Hill South chapter of National Honor Society works to create enthusiasm for scholarship, to stimulate a desire to render service, to promote leadership, and to develop character in high school students. Follow us on Twitter: @PHSouthNHS.
