Manteo Middle School offers membership in our chapter of the National Junior Honor Society for eligible Eighth Grade Students. Students must fill out an application and have teacher recommendations to be nominated to the organization. The induction ceremony is held in the fall. Students participate in a number of various volunteer opportunities to benefit our school and community such as a food drive, book drive and service opportunity to read aloud to some of our local preschool students.
Students who are considered for membership in our NJHS must have a cumulative grade point average of at least 95 from their sixth and seventh grade years.
This involves voluntary contributions made by a student to the school or community, done without compensation.
Student leaders are those who are resourceful, good problem solvers, and idea contributors. Leadership experiences can be drawn from school or community activities while working with or for others.
The student of good character is cooperative; demonstrates high standards of honesty and reliability; shows courtesy, concern, and respect for others; and generally maintains a clean disciplinary record.
The student who demonstrates citizenship understands the importance of civic engagement; has a high regard for freedom and justice; respects the U.S. form of government; respects the law for all citizens at the local, state, and federal levels; and demonstrates mature participation and responsibility in activities such as scouting, community organizations, or school clubs.
