Since its creation in 1921, the National Honor Society (NHS) has become the nation's premier organization established to recognize outstanding high school students.

Scholarship is an important characteristic of National Honor Society students, but it is not the only trait. Along with their academic accomplishments, students who are invited to join the organization must also demonstrate excellence in the areas of leadership, service, and character.

The Roosevelt Chapter of the National Honor Society, which was established in 1925, has embodied these characteristics since the chapter's beginnings. Today, Roosevelt students are among the approximately one million high school students who participate in NHS activities.

During the 2010-2011 school year, the Roosevelt Chapter has been actively involved in the life of the school. Important activities have included particiaption in Homecoming Week activities, sponsorship and organization of a successful blood drive, and NHS members given hundreds of hours worth of their time as volunteers for a number of school-wide and community projects.

The Roosevelt chapter has some 30 members. The group's faculty advisors are Pam Schreurs and Jim McComas-Bussa.
