Paideia Academy South Mountain has established a chapter of the National Elementary Honor Society (NEHS grades 4-6) and National Junior Honor Society (NJHS grades 7-8) to recognize our most outstanding students. The national office approved our chapter of this prestigious new national student recognition program (founded in 2008), and we will undertake the process of selecting new members in the fall of 2016. More than just an honor roll, NEHS/NJHS engages its members in service activities and leadership development that help strengthen the programs at school and improve life in the community.
The decision to bring NEHS/NJHS to Paideia Academy is an indication of a commitment to acknowledge the hard work of high achieving and well-rounded students. The National Elementary Honor Society joins the National Junior Honor Society as the nation’s premier organizations recognizing outstanding students who demonstrate excellence in the areas of scholarship, responsibility, leadership, service, citizenship, and character.
