Members of OLSH's National Honor Society are expected to uphold the four pillars of NHS - Scholarship, Character, Service, and Leadership. Students must maintain a GPA of at least 3.75, a conduct grade of at least 93 each semester, and perform service to the school and the community. NHS members also serve as peer tutors in the OWL Center.
