How to Become a MemberAll Brooklawn students in grades 7th and 8th, as well as second semester 6th are granted membership into the NJHS if they possess the guidelines established by our local chapter. Guidelines include a GPA of 85% or higher and exemplary examples of scholarship, leadership, service, citizenship, and character. No student will be inducted simply because of a high academic average. Our chapter strives to recognize the well-rounded student – one who excels in all of these areas.
Interested students, that meet the GPA requirement, may apply for membership in February. All applications can be found in Mrs. Frey's classroom or can be downloaded below.
Council members will rate all applicants in each of the five content areas and those applicants that receive 65+ points out of the possible 75 points will be granted membership.
