National Honor Society
The mission of the SITHS chapter of the National Honor Society (NHS) is to acknowledge, celebrate, and promote the ongoing academic and personal accomplishments of the student body throughout their entire high school experience.
The pillar criteria that the NHS upholds underscores what the highly competitive colleges and universities are looking for in a gifted and talented student, and reflects relevant 21st century learning skills which enable students to be college and career ready. Recognition by the NHS is reserved for candidates who have exemplified the ideals of the society. While we know that not every student will be recognized, we sincerely hope that all students work towards these goals.
Membership into the SITHS chapter of the NHS is based upon a student’s academic and personal achievement in each of the cornerstones upon which the organization is founded — Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and Character. The following performance rubric outlines the eligibility indicators, as set by national standards from the NHS and the Staten Island Tech Faculty Council. The corresponding criteria outlines how candidates will be evaluated for eligibility. A student must exemplify all four pillars in order to be inducted into NHS. Students are evaluated for induction during their Junior (11th) year, but can also be evaluated in their Senior (12th) year should they need more time to meet eligibility requirements. Students can also be removed from the NHS, after Induction, if they do not maintain the eligibility requirements.

Spread The Warmth Drive
As you may know from the news a number of people have recently arrived in New York, including Staten Island and Brooklyn who are in need.
The National Honor Society would like to "spread the warmth" for the upcoming winter season to welcome and support our newest community members.
If you are in a position and would like to help, please do. We are kindly requesting donations of toiletries (new/unused) and winter accessories (scarves, hats, gloves, socks, and warm pajama sets).
The Campaign will begin on Thursday November 10th and will conclude on Monday November 28th. Drop-off boxes will be located at the student entrance in the cafeteria.
If you would like to volunteer your time to help in these efforts, please fill out the attached google form. Service hours will vary depending upon volunteer selection.
These "good works" are a vital part of the National Honor Society Organization’s mission to promote character and service.
Charity begins at home and New York City is home to us all.
