ARISTA

National Honor Society

ARISTA is for Junior and Senior Students Only

ARISTA, the National Honor Society, is an organization consisting of students who demonstrate academic excellence, outstanding character and commitment to community service.

Membership in ARISTA, the National Honor Society, is one of the highest honors awarded to a high school student. Selection is based upon careful consideration of a student's scholarship, service, leadership, and character. Membership carries with it a responsibility and an obligation to demonstrate these qualities inside and outside of school.

All ARISTA members must complete a minimum of 60 hours of community service. They must remain in good standing (academic and disciplinary) to continue being a part of this organization. Some of the community service can be completed in the school by participating in peer tutoring, assisting in open house, parent-teacher conferences, high school fairs and other school events.

  1. You must have a passing grade in ALL subjects.
