In the spring of each school year the students' grade point averages are reviewed. The discipline file of each student is also reviewed. The students with a 3.75 GPA and no discipline issues are given a letter of invitation for consideration. Upon the letter/s return the students are handed an application.
The application requires various information including, but not limited to:
2. School Involvement
4. Community Service Activities
5. Other Accomplishments
6. Disciplinary History
The students’ then return their applications and the applications are sent to a teacher committee for final review. The students then receive a letter of acceptance or decline depending on the committee's decision.NOTE*The NJHS application submitted becomes the property of McNiel MS NJHS and will not be returned nor a copy given to the student after submission.** A big part of NJHS is responsibility. One way students demonstrate this is that they fill out ALL sections of the application.***Another way to prove responsibility is to ADHERE TO DEADLINES which are required during the paperwork process.****The national office does not hear appeals or render decisions for selection or dismissal. All appeals must be filed at the local level.
