National Honor Society (NHS)
The National Honor Society transcends American education and life. Since 1921, NHS has been recognizing the highest achieving students in grades 10-12. Today NHS inducts more than 1 million members each year who make significant service contributions to their schools and communities. NHS has become a springboard for life for successful individuals—from public servants, to media luminaries, to Supreme Court justices, to sports legends. NHS members can prepare for whatever comes their way after high school. We tell our members: Honor Your Future Now. And that's exactly what we help them do.
Here at BIS, our NHS members contribute to the school and community in a variety of ways. In addition to holding themselves to high standards, through scholarship, service, and character. We share our enthusiasm for the success of our school and community by engaging in a variety of service projects throughout the year including: after-school tutoring programs for BIS students, volunteering at an English language program at the Baku American Center, holding various donation drives to support the needs of our city, and more. Some of our members have volunteered time on their own at local centers and even started other clubs on campus to help support the needs of our community. BIS is proud of the contributions our students have made through this program.
