NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY
National Honor Society is a service organization that focusses on contributing to the community by serving as peer tutors in all subject areas, and carrying out varied service projects throughout the Milton area. We work in collusion with North Fulton Community Charities to complete donation drives, and to provide those around our community with the items they would otherwise be unable to come across. As stated on the national NHS website, "The National Honor Society (NHS) is the nation's premier organization established to recognize outstanding high school students. More than just an honor roll, NHS serves to recognize those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, leadership, service, and character."
