Process for getting into NHS:

  1. Students who believe they will have a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or above must pick up application paperwork from Mr. Kennedy or Mrs. Scroggins, completed, and returned by ?day, Mar. ?, 2018.  We will have a meeting with potential members on ?day, Mar. ?, 2018.
  2. Scholarship:  As soon as Quarter 3 grades have been turned in, a list of all students at the school who have a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or above is retrieved.  This will be matched against those applying.
  3. Character, Leadership, and Service:
    1. Applying students’ names are put into a form that goes out to all staff members: certified and classified.  The form asks the staff to rate any students they recognize from 0 to 4 on Character, Leadership, and Service. 
    2. All the information is then compiled.  Students must have at least 7 nominations, and a total average of 9.6 with at least a 3.0 average in each of the three categories. 
    3. The PHS NHS Faculty Council (one teacher from each department and the two NHS Advisers) looks over and approves the list.
  4. Those that have met requirements receive invitations to their Induction Ceremony.
