Selection Process:
The National Honor Society is a national organization for the recognition of students with outstanding accomplishments in the areas of scholarship, leadership, service, and character.
To be considered for selection into the National Honor Society, a Lakewood High School junior or senior must meet the following criteria:
Student has earned a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.500.
Student has submitted a letter of interest and a resume of activities to support leadership and service (by an established deadline).
Candidates will be rated by LHS staff based on leadership, service, and character.
Final selection into the National Honor Society shall be by a majority vote of the Lakewood High School NHS Faculty Advisory Council, the members of which are appointed annually by the principal.
Please note: To be eligible for consideration, students must be enrolled at LHS for at least one semester immediately preceding the selection process.

Dismissal Procedures:
Members who fall below the standards, which were the basis for their selection, shall be promptly warned by the chapter advisor or principal and given a reasonable amount of time to correct the deficiency (poor grades and/or lack of participation in chapter’s activities). In the case of flagrant or continued violations of school rules or civic laws, a member does not necessarily have to be warned prior to being dismissed. However, in all cases of impending dismissal, a member shall have the right to a hearing before the NHS Faculty Council.
