Merrol Hyde Magnet School

National Honor Society


  Grades 11 & 12

The National Honor Society Chapter establishes membership based upon a student's outstanding performance in the areas of scholarship, leadership, service, and character. These criteria for selection are from the foundation upon which the organization and its activities are built. In order to be considered for National Honor Society membership, a student must have a cumulative grade point average of 3.9 as a Junior or 3.8 as a Senior.  Once a student meets scholastic requirements, a faculty evaluation is completed to determine if the candidate meets the requirements of leadership, service, and character.  The Faculty Council will review the faculty evaluations to determine which candidates are invited into membership.  An induction ceremony will take place in the Fall of each school year.  All students must complete 15 hours of community service each year with five hours completed by December.  For additional information, please contact Mrs. Kathy Fottrell.

Shared Vision

Merrol Hyde Magnet School is a unique, K-12 learning community that uses the Paideia philosophy of educating the whole child--mind, body, and spirit--to meet the needs of students.  We will provide intentional, rigorous, accelerated college-preparatory instruction focused on humanities and critical and creative thinking.

We will create a collaborative community where students and teachers actively engage in continual growth and learning, seek out and civilly discuss diverse ideas and values, and pursue solutions to enrich their lives and the lives of others.
