The National Honor Society (NHS) is a national organization designed to recognize outstanding high school students. The society is dedicated to four pillars: scholarship, service, leadership, and character. Each spring potential candidates are invited to apply. Membership is determined by a Faculty Council and each fall the new members are inducted during a special evening ceremony. The Eisenhower Chapter of the National Honor Society inducts sophomores, juniors, and seniors who have demonstrated the qualities demanded for NHS membership.
 
To be considered for membership, a student must have met the following requirements:
 
Freshmen:
  • A minimum 3.5 cumulative GPA (unweighted)
  • Participation in at least 2 clubs, activities, or athletics over the past 2 semesters
  • Demonstration of outstanding character and leadership qualities
