Academic Honors Societies

San Gabriel Mission High School offers opportunities for students to apply for additional accolades and achievements. Below are the opportunities we encourage students to strive for based on their academic achievements.

National Honor Society

  • The National Honor Society (NHS) is a nation-wide organization.
  • Chapter number: 11221
  • Affiliation number: 027728

This society is composed of sophomores, juniors and seniors who have achieved a cumulative un-weighted 3.5 GPA and who have demonstrated leadership, service, and character throughout their high school experience.  Students must apply for membership and are chosen annually by a designated faculty committee in accordance with the by-laws of NHS.  A special induction ceremony takes place once a year in the fall semester.  Lifetime Membership.
