The NJHS is the junior version of the National Honor Society (NHS). Any student in the second semester of the sixth grade or grades 7 through 9 in a school with both an official charter of the National Junior Honor Society and an up-to-date affiliation with the NJHS national office is eligible for consideration for membership in NJHS. Students who meet the attendance and scholastic requirements are then evaluated by the faculty council on the basis of leadership, service, citizenship, and character. Once selected and inducted, members must maintain these standards.
The selection criteria for the Monroe Middle School Chapter of the National Junior Honor Society:
Scholarship: A 3.5 cumulative scholastic grade point average
Citizenship: The student who demonstrates citizenship understands the importance of civic involvement, has a high regard for freedom, justice, and democracy, and demonstrates mature participation and responsibility through involvement with such activities as scouting, community organizations, and school clubs.
Character: The student of good character upholds principles of morality and ethics, is cooperative, demonstrates high standards of honesty and reliability, shows courtesy, concern, and respect for others, and generally maintains a good and clean lifestyle.
Service: This quality is defined through the voluntary contributions made by a student to the school or community, done without compensation and with a positive, courteous, and enthusiastic spirit.
