National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) is a student organization that consists of chapters in middle schools and was established to recognize outstanding middle level students. National Junior Honor Society’s primary purpose is to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of character, scholarship, service, leadership and citizenship.
Each chapter sets its own membership selection criteria which is based on teacher recommendation, community service and achievement at an exceptional level. Community service hours can include the following settings: school, outside organizations or the community at large.
At AMD, students are notified if they are eligible to be inducted into the NJHS in the fall of their 8th grade year. Candidates for the 2022-2023 school year must have demonstrated an overall GPA of 92% for each of the four quarters for grades 6th-8th grade and successful completion of individual and group community service projects.
