    II. 4 Pillars

    The Four Pillars of the National Honor Society include the following values. Character, the force within an individual which distinguishes that person for others. Service, the willingness to work without monetary compensation or recognition. Leadership, the willingness to yield to one’s personal interest for the interest of others. Scholarship, a commitment to learning.

    III. National Honor Society Tutoring

    The following link https://forms.gle/zvSWpPaD28gYFjWn7 is the official NHS internal tutoring request form for students to fill out if they need help in any of their classes. Teachers are welcome to fill out the form or have their students fill out the form. Completing this form with as many details as possible will allow us to match the student with a tutor (an AMHS NHS junior or senior) who has similar interests and who we believe will be able to help the student find success and understand the class material.
