The National Honor Society was founded in 1921, with the hope of creating an organization that would recognize and encourage academic achievement while developing other characteristics essential to productive citizens.  The objectives of its founders “were to create an enthusiasm for scholarship, to stimulate a desire to render service, to promote worthy leadership, and to encourage the development of character in the nation’s secondary schools.”  Woodstown High School students are invited to join the National Honor Society in the fall of their junior year. 

National Honor Society Criteria:

Each student eligible for the Woodstown High School Chapter must exemplify the following Criteria.
