What is NAHS? The National Honor Society (NAHS) is designed specifically for high school students in grades 9-12. In 1978, the National Art Educator 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. At the end of your membership, seniors are recognized at graduation with honors cords. Please see requirements in the links below.
The Tri-M® Music Honor Society is a program of the National Association for Music Education (NAfME), which focuses on creating future leaders in music education and music advocacy. Tri-M is the only music honor society for junior/middle school and high school students in the country and it recognizes students that have gone above and beyond both academically and musically.
Tri-M also provides students leadership opportunities to make a difference in their community through music-based service projects. Each year, student members contribute more than 750,000 service hours to their school and local communities and raise nearly $1 million for causes they care about.
