Burlington High School
National Honor Society
The National Honor Society(NHS) is a nationwide organization for high school students in the United States and outlying territories, which consists of many chapters in high school. Selection is based on four criteria: scholarship (academic achievement), leadership, service, and character. The National Honor Society requires some sort of service to the community, school, or other organizations. The groups are commonly active in community service activities both in the community and at the school. Many chapters maintain a requirement for participation in such service activities.
