The National Elementary Honor Society

The National Elementary Honor Society recognizes and promotes scholarship, responsibility, leadership and service.

The National Elementary Honor Society (NEHS) was established in 2008 by the National Association of Secondary School Principals in cooperation with the National Association of Elementary School Principals to recognize elementary students in both public and non-public elementary schools for their outstanding academic achievement and demonstrated personal responsibility, to provide meaningful service to the school and community, and to develop essential leadership skills in the students of elementary schools.

The founding committee viewed education as a total experience and the new honor society as more than just an honor roll—they emphasized the promotion of scholarship, along with leadership, service, character, morality, and spirituality.  According to the constitution of the National Elementary Honor Society, the purposes of the society are to create an enthusiasm for scholarship, to stimulate a desire to render service, to promote leadership, and to develop character in the students of elementary schools.

We are honoring these individuals who have demonstrated through their actions and deeds that they share the values of the National Elementary Honor Society.  So, to all of the new inductees, we encourage you with the National Elementary Honor Society’s motto of Noblesse Oblige, or, loosely translated, “to whom much is given, much is expected.”
