National Junior Honor Society (NJHS)

Welcome to the organization the world’s highest achieving students have been proudly adding to their résumés since 1929. There is only one National Junior Honor Society (NJHS), and it provides an outstanding opportunity to grow with academically accomplished peers who are sharpening the habits needed for success in high school and beyond.

NJHS Advisor: Bianca Zuniga

NJHS meets the second Tuesday of each month in the library from 3:35 - 4:30pm, unless otherwise stated.


Membership in the NJHS is considered an honor. Eligibility in the NJHS is based on academic criteria recommended by the National Council of the National Junior Honor Society. To be eligible for membership the candidate must be enrolled as a member of the 7th grade or 8th grade class at Brownsboro Junior High. Candidates shall then be evaluated on the basis of service, leadership, character and citizenship by completing an application shortly after the first nine weeks. Eligibility does not guarantee selection as a member.

To remain in good standing, NJHS members must maintain academic excellence (GPA of 3.5 or greater), attend monthly meetings and participate in service opportunities involving 4 hours of service per marking period. Members must demonstrate continuing leadership, citizenship, character, and must participate in NJHS sponsored activities.
