The Daegu High School Chapter of NHS has established strict criteria for membership.

  • To be eligible for selection to membership in this chapter, the candidate must have been in attendance for a period of at least one semester at DHS. The invitation/induction period will commence shortly after the first semester ends.

  • The first step for all candidates to be found eligible is based upon their minimum cumulative GPA of 3.5 (out of 4.0 scale) and they must belong to the top 20 percent of their graduating class. All students who can rise in scholarship to or above such standard may be invited to candidacy for consideration for membership.

  • Upon meeting the grade level and GPA standard requirements, candidates shall then be considered based on their conduct, service, leadership and character.

Conduct, Service, Leadership and Character

  • Candidates who meet the required criteria for membership can choose to accept or decline an invitation to be considered for membership in the DHS Chapter of NHS. Applicants will be evaluated by a staff council on the basis of service, leadership and character. Candidates must not have received suspension or been involved with any activity requiring the intervention of law enforcement at any time during high school prior to application.

  • Conduct is evidenced by school administration, faculty, school records and subjective observance of behavior, in and out of class, of each candidate prior to invitation.

  • Service and volunteerism speaks to compassion, and a desire to serve a part of the world greater than self.  Service for membership is evidenced by essay defining the amount of community service affiliation each candidate has experienced and what that volunteer service means to the candidate.

  • Leadership is evidenced by an essay defining the meaning of leadership and a well-written depiction of at least one leadership role each candidate experienced.

  • Character evaluations are based on admin and faculty observations, school records and at least one character reference letter provided to the NHS adviser from an adult, teacher or volunteer supervisor who is familiar enough with candidates to be able to speak to their character attributes.
