National Honor Society
Forman School has a longstanding partnership with the National Honor Society. For many years, students who embody the qualities of scholarship, service, leadership, and character at Forman have been chosen to be part of this prestigious group.
Formed in 1921, the NHS recognizes scholastically outstanding secondary school students. It was modeled after Phi Beta Kappa, the undergraduate collegiate honor society in the United States.
As a recognized local chapter of the international organization, the Forman School chapter is required to abide by the NHS Constitution and to have its own written by-laws. Certain areas are addressed in the by-laws, which originate with the Faculty Council, and/or with the student NHS Executive Committee.
*Unless otherwise noted, the Faculty Council decides on the items for consideration.*
Forman NHS Events
Members of the Forman NHS chapter lead the annual induction ceremonies at on campus each spring. Students who are announced for NHS exemplify the qualities above, and are active in school programs such as community service, athletics, and the arts. While the NHS recognizes students for their current accomplishments, it also challenges them to further develop their student careers through school activities and service.
