National Junior Honor Society

The National Junior Honor Society was founded in 1929 to encourage scholarship among middle school students and foster character, service, citizenship, and leadership. The Phoenix Chapter of NJHS has worked hard to bring the accomplishments of outstanding students to the attention of parents, teachers, peers, and the community. Our chapter, along with the more than 6,000 chapters in schools across the nation, strives to give practical meaning to the Society’s high character standards. The National Junior Honor Society strives to recognize the total student—one who excels in all of these areas. Select students are considered for membership during the second semester of each school year.
