Social Studies Honor Society

SSHS

The Social Studies Honor Society recognizes students with outstanding achievements in the area of history and the social sciences. Students who have achieved a final grade of A - in all of their social studies courses by Junior year, a minimum 3.5 unweighted GPA overall, have not received below a B- in any marking period in a social studies course, and are enrolled in at least 1 additional social studies course beyond the graduation requirement, are invited to apply for membership. Students must also prove their active involvement in a social studies related club or activity outside of school. These include but are not limited to: Student Government, Dead Presidents Society, JSA, Asian Club, Law Club and other activities such as social volunteerism outside of the school. All candidates must be in good standing. Students with Level I and II Integrity violations may be considered for admission; students with Level III or IV Integrity violations may NOT apply. Character for continuing membership in these societies adheres to the same policy as the National Honor Society as outlined in the student handbook.
