The National Honor Society (NHS) and the National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) are the nation’s premier organizations established to recognize outstanding high school and middle school students. More than just an organization that recognizes scholarship, National Junior Honor Society also serves to honor students who demonstrate excellence in leadership, service, character and citizenship.

A student must be in seventh or eighth grade and have a cumulative average of 90% in the core subjects over the previous six quarters in order to be considered for membership in Pardes’s chapter of NJHS. A student who meets these qualifications and has demonstrated superior leadership and citizenship qualities may then choose to complete the application process. Our Faculty Council reviews applications and selects students for membership.
Members of the Pardes NJHS chapter are involved in our school community and beyond. They are required to participate in a minimum of ten hours of community service each semester as well as uphold the core values of Pardes.

This year, for the first time, the National Association of Secondary School Principals, of which NJHS is a program, has launched the National Junior Honor Society Outstanding Achievement Award program.  This award recognizes 500 of the most exceptional NJHS members nationwide with a $500 college savings award. Mazal Tov to eighth graders Ethan Cohen, Berkeley Lock and Ethan Rosenfeld for receiving this incredible award!
