At Circleville High School, the honors are open to all juniors and seniors who have maintained a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher, received a recommendation from a staff member through an evaluation survey, submitted additional letters of recommendation, and were evaluated in the four NHS pillar areas of scholarship, service, leadership, and character. These pillars character traits are detailed below:


Per national guidelines, at a minimum, students must have a cumulative GPA of 85, B, 3.0 on a 4.0 scale, or equivalent standard of excellence. (Each school chapter is allowed to require a higher cumulative GPA.)


This involves voluntary contributions made by a student to the school or community, done without compensation.


Student leaders are those who are resourceful, good problem solvers, and idea contributors. Leadership experiences can be drawn from school or community activities while working with or for others.


The student of good character is cooperative; demonstrates high standards of honesty and reliability; shows courtesy, concern, and respect for others; and generally maintains a clean disciplinary record.

Congratulations to these 20 Tigers for their induction into the Circleville High School Everts Chapter of the National Honor Society.
