The National Junior Honor Society is a co-curricular organization that fosters academic excellence, community service, leadership, and citizenship.
The first semester of the academic year will determine a student's eligibility. Induction will occur in the second semester. Students who satisfy the academic requirement of a 92% average will be invited to participate in the selection process. Qualifying students will be asked to complete a Student Activity Form (record of school/community service hours and leadership roles), submit 3 recommendation surveys completed by faculty members and/or administration, as well as a personal statement indicating why he or she should be granted membership into the National Junior Honor Society. Students who meet these requirements will be extended an invitation to join Gray Middle School chapter of the NJHS.
Students who are inducted into the GMS National Junior Honor Society are expected to maintain the required grade average. Should a student fail to meet the academic minimum, he or she will be placed on academic probation for the subsequent semester after which he or she will be expected to meet the minimum. Students will also be expected to complete community service through various service projects offered throughout the school year.
Students are expected to attend the general meeting which will be held the second Thursday of every month (unless otherwise notified by NJHS sponsors), and various committee meetings as necessary.
Overall, students are expected to be leaders inside and out of the classroom.
