National Junior Honor Society
About the National Junior Honor Society
The National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) is the nation's premier organization established to recognize outstanding middle school students. Having an NJHS chapter elevates a school's commitment to the values of scholarship, service, leadership, character, and citizenship. These five pillars have been associated with membership in the organization since its inception in 1929. The National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP) officially established NJHS eight years after it founded National Honor Society for high school students.
Much more than an honor roll, NJHS is a distinctive multifaceted learning experience that provides a solid and meaningful foundation for life. Today it is estimated that more than one million students participate in NJHS activities, and chapters are found in all 50 states, US Territories, and around the world.
