National Honor Society

The International School of Port of Spain's National Honor Society is a group of students who are committed to providing support and assistance to individuals and organizations in effort to improve society. These students were carefully chosen based on their character, service, scholarship and leadership. NHS members consistently work together to organize different fundraising events and weekly visits to multiple charitable organizations.

Our current projects at hand include:

  • Teaming with Team Hope and Habitat for Humanity to build a home in Freeport
  • Volunteering at Christ Child Convalescent Home
  • Independent tutoring
  • Helping the refurbishment of St. Hilda’s Secondary School in partnership with Fun Memories Foundation

Selection Process

The members of the National Honor Society are selected from the sophomore, junior and senior classes using criteria based on scholarship, leadership, service, and character. Students who wish to be members of this prestigious organization must show a dedication to community service, leadership in school organizations, and exemplary character.


Students who have a cumulative grade point average of 85 percent, 3.00 (on a 4.0 scale) meet the scholarship requirement for membership. These students are then eligible for consideration on the basis of service, leadership, and character.


This quality is defined through the voluntary contributions made by a student to the school or community, done without compensation and with a positive, courteous, and enthusiastic spirit.


Student leaders are those who are resourceful, good problem solvers, promoters of school activities, idea-contributors, dependable, and persons who exemplify positive attitudes about life. Leadership experiences can be drawn from school or community activities while working with or for others.


The student of good character upholds principles of morality and ethics, is cooperative, demonstrates high standards of honesty and reliability, shows courtesy, concern, and respect for others, and generally maintains a good and clean lifestyle.
