MEMBERSHIP


Membership in National Honor Society is one of the highest honors bestowed by Barberton High School. Selection to the National Honor Society is a privilege, not a right and is open to those students who have attended the school equivalent of one semester. Membership is granted only to students whose completed applications are reviewed and selected by the Faculty Senate. The school’s selection process seeks to be fair, non-discriminatory, and consistently applied.


SELECTION PROCEDURES


The first requirement, according to the local chapter, is that the student must have a minimum 3.50 cumulative grade point average (unweighted) or higher. Second, one must submit the on-line application by 2:30 P.M. on Tuesday March 24, 2020. The application will not be available after 2:30 P.M. Third, a minimum of fifty GPA and student activity points is needed to be eligible.


When a student meets the above requirements, the Barberton High School faculty and administrative members are given a form to review and comment on a potential candidate’s leadership, service, and character. The student must have an average score above a 3.0 from the faculty and administrative members to be considered. Faculty and administrative members are encouraged only to comment on those students with whom they have had sufficient contact.


One’s cumulative grade point average, application, total GPA/student activity points, and faculty comments will be presented by Mrs. McMullen to the Faculty Senate. The Faculty Senate will choose the students who will be accepted for membership in National Honor Society.
