Clubs and Organizations

Avon Middle School North established a chapter of the National Junior Honor Society in the Fall of 2019.  Chapter membership not only recognizes students for their accomplishments, but challenges them to develop further through active involvement in school activities and community service.

Five main purposes have guided chapters of NJHS from the beginning: to create enthusiasm for scholarship; to stimulate a desire to render service; to promote leadership; to encourage responsible citizenship; and to develop character in the students of secondary schools. These purposes also translate into the criteria used for membership selection in each local chapter. 

NJHS nominations at AMSN are based on a variety of factors, such as GPA, data, classroom performance, and multiple teachers recommending students based on the NJHS criteria of Scholarship, Service, Leadership, Citizenship, and Character.  If a student is nominated, he/she must take the initiative to apply, obtain another adult recommendation, and commit to the NJHS criteria if selected.
