National Junior Honor Society

  • Character, Citizenship, Leadership, Scholarship, Service

    Welcome to the BMS-NJHS Website! The National Junior Honor Society is the nation’s premier organization established to recognize outstanding middle-level students.  More than just an honor roll, NJHS serves to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, service, leadership, character, and citizenship.  Five main purposes have guided chapters of NJHS from the beginning: to create enthusiasm for scholarship; to stimulate a desire to render service; to promote leadership; to encourage responsible citizenship, and to develop character in the students of secondary schools. These purposes also translate into the criteria used for membership selection in each local chapter. (Source)

    NJHS Membership Invitations are sent to student candidates via email using the school G-mail with an invitation along with an application in September. Parents WILL NOT receive an email. After the application process, welcome letters will be distributed in October.  Membership Invitations are only sent to students who have a cumulative GPA of 3.7 and higher for the previous school years (Grades 6 & 7).  Students who become eligible after the first semester of eighth grade, are also invited in January. 

    Sponsors: Mr. Maguire and Ms. Suessen
