The Durfee High School chapter of the National Honor Society is dedicated to scholastic achievement, community and school service, leadership and character-building. The organization is open to all students who maintain a 3.9, or B, average on Durfee's weighted scale. Members are expected to participate in activities that will better their school and community and raise awareness of the issues in Fall River, MA. NHS members are considered role models for all Durfee students and endeavor to achieve the highest levels of social awareness, academic achievement and personal integrity.
Members should be willing to:
Serve their school when called upon
Complete a service program outside of school each year. (This project must encompass at least 30 hours and ideally will represent a cause that is relevant to the student)
