The National Chinese Honor Society (NCHS) is dedicated to the advancement of Chinese language study in public and independent secondary schools and is sponsored by the Chinese Language Association of Secondary-Elementary Schools (CLASS).
The National Chinese Honor Society was established in November 1993. Its objective is to acknowledge the superior achievement of secondary students studying Chinese as a second language. Like other honor societies, the National Chinese Honor Society not only recognizes high scholastic achievement but also good character, leadership, and service. NCHS members should exemplify all these standards. The Society’s goal is to promote enthusiasm for Chinese language learning and culture, commitment to advanced study, and greater cross-cultural understanding.
The National Chinese Honor Society Weston High School Chapter started in early 2010 and has the same objectives as the National Chinese Honor Society.
In order to be accepted, students need to:
A. take at least 3 semesters of Chinese at high school level, have an over all grade of A- in Chinese and B in all other subjects
B. show good character, leadership and service.
