At 8:15am on Wednesday, February 27, First Baptist School inducted students into the National Junior Honors Society and the National Honors Society. The downtown campus ceremony inducted 57 students who joined the 53 current NJHS and NHS members. Each National Honors Society inductee was selected by GPA (students must maintain a 4.0 GPA), teacher recommendations, discipline record, voluntary service, and tutoring record.
First Baptist School is proud of its students and their academic achievement! Currently, 30% of every grade, from 7th to 12th, qualifies for this prestigious honor. Congratulations in particular to the 7th-grade class, which has over 57% of its students in the National Junior Honors Society.
Inductees and members are part of the Mary Ellen Brodie Chapter of the National Honor Society, which was established at First Baptist School in 1959. The society has four broad aims: to stimulate and reward high academic performance, to provide opportunities for development of constructive leadership qualities, to provide opportunities for community and school service, and to stimulate worthy character development. Our school strives to achieve these aims by instructing students in a gospel-centered, academically-rigorous curriculum.
Congratulations once again to these students for achieving this distinguished honor!
