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 Fenwick Faculty Council choose the students who meet the following NHS requirements:
- Hold a minimum scholastic average of 3.7. (This average is determined by adding the weighted values for all of the major courses the student is taking in accordance with the national regulations.)
- Show their personal best by exhibiting the combination of service, leadership and character.
- 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.
