The National Honor Society is meant to recognize students excelling in four areas: Scholarship, Leadership, Service and Character. With scholarship, each candidate has maintained an impressive unweighted cumulative gpa of at least a 3.6 or an equally impressive weighted cumulative gpa of at least a 3.9.
Their leadership inspires positive attitudes and promotes the ideals of Newburyport High School. Their service shows precious “free” time has been given to help others without the need of recognition or compensation.
Lastly, their character exemplifies courtesy, honesty, reliability and dependability.
