You excel. You serve. You lead. You succeed.
You have a true thirst for challenge … and accomplishment. Membership in National Elementary Honor Society (NEHS) may be an ideal fit for you!
You can become a member through a local selection process that concludes with induction into the school’s National Elementary Honor Society chapter. Through exclusive resources, programs, and services, members have a unique opportunity to prepare for college and career pursuits. Membership truly lays the groundwork for lifelong success.
How Can You Become an NEHS Member?
Eligibility Requirements » Here is how to become a Wortham Oaks Elementary NEHS member. Students in grades 4th, 5th and 6th grade who have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 Scale are eligible to be invited for membership. To be accepted as a member of the Wortham Oaks Elementary NEHS, one must also meet further standards of good character, citizenship, leadership, and service. 
NEHS members should meet or excel in the following:
Scholarship: Per national guidelines, at a minimum, students must have a cumulative GPA of 85, B, 3.0 on a 4.0 scale, or equivalent standard of excellence.  An applicant with GPA’s lower than 3.0 will not be accepted. Candidates will be selected during the application process by the NEHS Faculty Council. 
Service:  This involves voluntary contributions made by a student to the school or community, done without compensation.
Leadership: Student leaders are those who are resourceful, good problem solvers, and idea contributors. Leadership experiences can be drawn from school or community activities while working with or for others.
Character: The student of good character is cooperative; demonstrates high standards of honesty and reliability; shows courtesy, concern, and respect for others; and generally maintains a clean disciplinary record.
Students who meet the Scholarship requirement will have an opportunity to complete a form detailing their accomplishments in and commitment to service, leadership, and character.
