National Honor Society

National Honor Society 2019-2020

  • Membership in the Duxbury High School National Honor Society is an honor inferred on high school students by the DHS Faculty.   The student membership represents those who, over the course of their four years, have consistently performed at the highest standard in four pillars:  Academic Excellence, Commitment to Service, Leadership, and Character.


    Students who have earned a cumulative grade point average of 3.5 or better by the end of the first semester of their junior year are eligible for invitation.   Interested students may complete the application process and an interview with members of the faculty.  The application and interview are scored based on standards that can be reviewed in the DHS Student Handbook. 


    Students who earn a cumulative weighted grade point average of 3.5 by the end of their Junior Year may also be considered for membership.  This process takes longer and some of it may occur over the summer vacation period.
