National Honor Society

The National Honor Society is an organization that honors students who are outstanding in scholarship, leadership, service and character.

The NHS publicly recognizes these students for their academic achievement by providing academic scholarships, opportunities for community service, and the reinforcement of friendship and cooperation within the school community.

22% of Fenwick students are members of the National Honor Society.


The following are NHS minimum requirements:

  • Scholarship: Hold a minimum scholastic average of 3.7. 
  • Service: The voluntary contribution of service made to the school or community, done without compensation and with a positive, courteous, and enthusiastic spirit.
  • Leadership: Proactive leadership through resourcefulness, good problem-solving, promotion of school activities, idea-contribution, dependable behavior, and exemplification of a positive attitude about life.
  • Character: The demonstration of morality and ethics, cooperation, high standards of honesty and reliability, courtesy, concern, respect for others, and the general maintenance of a good and clean lifestyle.

Members must be sophomores, juniors, or seniors.  They are chosen by a committee of faculty members and inducted annually in the Spring.
