  • The National Honor Society is a service organization for students who have displayed scholarship, leadership, service, and character (and citizenship for NJHS). These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since their beginnings in 1921 and 1929.

    George Washington's chapter has used the above criteria and defines scholarship as students who maintain a 3.70 GPA and above each academic quarter.

    Student inductions are held in June, at which time family and significant others are asked to attend this ceremony and celebrate their child's accomplishments.

    Students have an opportunity for induction to the National Honor Society at Minnie Howard School and T.C. Williams High School.
