The objectives of the ZHS Chapter National Honor Society shall be to promote and create enthusiasm for scholarship, to stimulate a desire to render service, to promote leadership, and to develop character in the students of Zillah High School .



Each school year following the completion of the first semester, ZHS students are inducted into the ZHS Chapter of NHS if they meet the national and local criteria.  Membership in the ZHS Chapter of NHS is a privilege, not an entitlement.  The membership selection process acknowledges not only high academic standards of courses and GPA but also service, leadership, character and citizenship. A fair and equitable evaluation of all candidates will be conducted by the ZHS faculty committee and only those candidates who meet the highest standards will be inducted into membership.  To be eligible for active membership in the ZHS Chapter of the National Honor Society a student must:
1. Be a member in good standing of the ZHS ASB.
2. Be on track to follow the Honors Diploma plan for their grade level.
3. Demonstrate a history of Scholarship which includes cumulative GPA criteria for admission by grade level:
        Sophomore candidates 3.75 or higher
        Junior candidates 3.60 or higher
        Senior candidates 3.50 or higher
4. Demonstrate a history of:
        Leadership in school and community
        Exemplary character and citizenship
5. Have a desire to maintain and expand a high level of scholarship, service, leadership, character and citizenship while attending ZHS.
Candidates who meet the minimum criteria may apply for membership.       
The ZHS Chapter will follow the selection guidelines for membership as stated in the National Constitution. 
The membership application will be reviewed by a faculty committee as outlined in the NHS constitution.  The faculty committee will then recommend to the advisor those candidates who meet the high standards of the NHS for induction into the organization.
All candidates for membership who submit a completed application will be given written notice of their membership status at the conclusion of the evaluation process.       
Late or incomplete membership applications will be rejected without committee review. 
Students who apply but do not get inducted into the ZHS Chapter of NHS following the first semester, may apply again the next cycle if they continue to meet the minimum membership application criteria.
