National Junior Honor Society (NJHS)
|The National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) is the middle school level of the National Honor Society. This group is the premier organization established to recognize outstanding middle school students. This is more than just an honor roll: NJHS students serve to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of Scholarship, Leadership, Service, Character and Citizenship. These characteristics have been associated with membership since the beginning of the organization in 1929.|

|NJHS Power time
We have an NJHS enrichment Power time made up of NJHS elected officers and other interested students who meet every day. These students have worked really hard for the organization throughout the year and they are the lead, go-to members in the organization. They love meeting and every time there is a new task for them to do, they jump on the opportunity to serve the organization. Here are some views of students participating in NJHS PowerTime.
