Science Honor Society

Science Honor Society recognizes students that have demonstrated excellence and achievement in science. All members must be enrolled in at least one honors or upper level science class during the eleventh and twelfth grade year. Membership for a student in the Science Honor Society is conferred in the last two years at SBHS. A student must have and maintain a 3.90 weighted grade point average to be a member. In addition, member must maintain a 3.90 average across all science courses. Students must have completed or be currently enrolled in a Biology, Chemistry and Physics course. In addition, candidates must lecture to a group about a science topic and be a member of a science related club, perform science tutoring, do science related community service or another pre-approved science activity.

 

The objectives of Science Honor Society are as follows: encourages and recognizes scientific and intellectual thought, advances the student's knowledge of classical and modern science, communicates with the scientific community, aids the civic community with its comprehension of science, encourages students to participate in community service and in turn, encourages a dedication to the pursuit of scientific knowledge that benefits all humankind.

All candidates must be in good standing. Character for membership in these societies adheres to the same policy as the National Honor Society as outlined in the student handbook.
