Welcome to Hellgate's National Honors Society!
In the spring of junior year, all Hellgate students with a cumulative GPA's of 3.5 or higher are invited to apply to National Honors Society. Teacher teams evaluate the lengthy application forms, ranking students for their grades and challenging nature of their classes. In addition, applications must prove that they have demonstrated leadership at school or in the community, and that they have completed substantive service to others. Finally, every member of staff assesses the character traits of each applicant they know. Only students with highest scores in the process are invited to join National Honor Society. A public induction ceremony occurs in Quarter 4.
NHS members who complete required service hours, maintain appropriate school conduct, and keep high grades are allowed to wear the NHS stoles at graduation in June. Our current advisors are Mr. Waniata and Mr. Christopher.
