National Art Honor Society - FHS Chapter
The National Art Honor Society (NAHS) is designed specifically for high school students in grades 10-12. In 1978, the National Art Education Association began the National Art Honor Society program to inspire and recognize students who have shown an outstanding ability and interest in art. The NAHS strives to aid members in attaining the highest standards in art scholarship, character, and service, and to bring art education to the attention of the school and community.
The National Art Honor Society inducts sophomores, juniors, and seniors annually.
Sophomores and juniors are inducted if they have a cumulative GPA of 3.5 in all art and design courses with at least one of those courses having a final grade of A- or better. In addition, candidates must be currently enrolled in an Art & Design Department course offering.
Seniors must satisfy the above criteria AND be currently enrolled in an upper level Art & Design course in the first semester of their senior year as well as complete a minimum of 30 hours of art-related community service.
To graduate with honors in Art, a student must maintain continuous enrollment in FHS Art & Design courses, be an active member of the National Art Honor Society, and have completed at least thirty hours of art-related community service using art skills.
