Student Council is a group of elected student officers who meet regularly and serve as a governing body for student affairs. Student Council is made up of all ASB officers, all class officers, and the president of each club. The key responsibilities and challenges of the student council are:
Class officers, together with their moderators, form a class board to plan and direct activities on a class level.
Running for Student Office
Students interested in running for ASB, Class, or Club offices have the opportunity each spring (specific election dates are posted on the school calendar). The requirements for running for the various student government offices are published each election season and can be obtained at any time from the Director of Activities.
All seniors serving on student council for at least three years may apply for a black cord to be worn at graduation.
All graduating ASB officers will receive a purple cord in honor of their service to the school.

NHS (National Honors Society)
The National Honor Society (NHS) is the nation’s premier organization established to recognize outstanding high school students. More than just an honor roll, NHS serves to honor students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and Character. These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since their beginnings in 1921 and 1929.
At San Gabriel Mission High School the Members of NHS serve both the community and school. The members participate in community service in the neighboring area as well as provide tutoring services to their peers to help support and motivate them in their academics.
Membership in NHS is by invitation. All students who have an unweighted cumulative total GPA of a 3.5 or higher receive an invitation in the fall. Since Scholarship is only one pillar of NHS, the board and advisors are searching for students who embody all pillars. To demonstrate these pillars, those invited must fill out a detailed application along with an essay. Once this has been turned in, interviews are held to learn more about the applicants. Taking scholarship, the application, essay, and interview into consideration, the NHS board and advisor determine which students will be inducted for the new school year.
