The Wildcat Chapter of the National Honor Society (NHS), comprising of both the National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) and the National Elementary Honor Society (NEHS), is more than just a school honor roll. The Honor Society chapter establishes rules for membership that are based upon a student's outstanding performance in the areas of scholarship, service, leadership, character, and citizenship. These criteria for selection form the foundation upon which the organization and its activities are built and maintained.
* Scholarship: Students who have a cumulative grade point average of 3.75 or higher, for 2 consecutive semester periods, meet the scholarship requirement for membership in the Wildcat Chapter. These students are then eligible for consideration on the basis of service, leadership, character, and citizenship.
* Service: This quality is defined through the voluntary contributions made by a student to the school or community, done without compensation and with a positive, courteous, and enthusiastic spirit. NJHS members are required to fulfill a minimum of 10 service hours per semester, whereas NEHS student members are required to serve 5 hours of service for the same period.
* Leadership: Student leaders are those who are resourceful, good problem solvers, promoters of school activities, idea-contributors, dependable, and persons who exemplify positive attitudes about life. Leadership experiences can be drawn from school or community activities while working with or for others.
* Character: The student of good character upholds principles of morality and ethics, is cooperative, demonstrates high standards of honesty and reliability, shows courtesy, concern, and respect for others, and generally maintains a good and responsible lifestyle.
* Citizenship: The student who demonstrates citizenship understands the importance of civic involvement, has a high regard for freedom, justice, and democracy, and demonstrates mature participation and responsibility through involvement with such activities as scouting, community organizations, and school clubs.
