Welcome back for the second semester of the 2015-2016 school year. Northwestern High School is committed to keeping our students, parents, and community informed regarding academic, athletic, and extra-curricular opportunities. In addition, all of our high school teachers are "connected" in some way, always searching for ways to improve the education of our students. Feel free to connect with one or more of the following:

National Honor Society
Opportunity for membership in the Northwestern Chapter of National Honor Society occurs during the second semester of junior and/or senior years. To become a member, the student must first qualify in the area of scholarship and then must meet the conditions outlined under character, service, and leadership. All applications will be reviewed and voted on by a Faculty Council appointed by the Principal.
Scholarship – Must have a cumulative “B” grade point average, which is a 7.900 on Northwestern’s grading scale. Every student who qualifies with this grade point average will be invited to apply for membership. After submitting an application, the student will be considered for membership based on the following criteria:
Character – This includes a demonstration of honesty, reliability, observation of rules, perseverance and application to studies, avoidance of cheating in any form, lack of participation in illegal activities such as drinking of alcoholic beverages and the consumption of illegal drugs, and exemplification of desirable personality traits (cheerfulness, friendliness, and stability). Character will be considered by staff evaluation and by evaluation of each student’s discipline record.
Service – The student must have been active in at least four different Northwestern High School service clubs and/or community organizations/activities/clubs OR accumulated a minimum of 15 volunteer hours in one organization. Service is the goal of this category. Service is defined as reaching out and assisting others or performing a useful community service without receiving compensation. Documentation of your acts of service should be included with the NHS application.
Leadership – The candidate must hold at least one major leadership position at Northwestern High School or in an outside group, such as class officer, club officer, society officer, editor of newspaper or yearbook, varsity athlete or cheerleader, band drum major, band captains, band/choir section leader, and varsity singer. If the applicant does not currently hold a leadership position, he/she may still meet this criterion if he/she can list three leadership roles held previously at school or in the community since the ninth grade.
It is important for you to follow the instructions for the application. Please make sure to submit the application by the due date. Late and/or incomplete applications will not be considered. Students should begin developing their membership potential for National Honor Society in their freshman year of high school. If you have any questions about National Honor Society, please contact Mrs. A. Miller, the faculty advisor.
