National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) members take pride in helping out the community and the school. During the school year, they will have the opportunity to participate in several different service learning activities.

Students must attain a 3.8 cumulative grade point average in order to qualify tor acceptance in Grissom's chapter of the National Junior Honor Society. This level of performance must be maintained throughout the duration of membership in the organization.

Scholarship

Students must maintain a Grade Point Average (GPA) of 3.8 or higher on a 4.0 scale. If a student falls below this criteria at mid-term, the student is placed on probation until the end of the quarter. If the student does not achieve the 3.8 GPA by the end of the marking period, the student loses the privilege of graduating with honors.
