The 2022-2023 Goffstown High School school year has 5 honor societies!

Honor Societies are a way to get involved and help your community and school while helping yourself because it’s selective and displays excellence. If you can, you can do them all! Not only that, it’s an exciting experience, and are able to run for a government position to help run the honor society helping continue the positive legacy.

National Honors Society

Also known as NHS and the longest running, the National Honors Society recognizes overall academic excellence in every subject and how great you are outside of school. This means “you’re all that and a bag of chips.” If you meet the requirements, you get sent a letter or an e-mail that NHS has recognized your excellence. To take your interest further, click the link below or reach out to Mr. Chadbourne.

Tri – M

Not having “honor society” in the name doesn’t mean it isn’t one. It’s formally called the “Tri-M Music Honor Society.” Tri-M is the honor society involved in music and music ensembles. To join Tri-M, you need to be in at least 2 music ensembles. Do you see where the “tri” and “M” come from now? “Tri” for being in 2 music ensembles and the 3rd is your “Tri” in Tri- M, and “M” for music. Special perks are given to those in this honor society. Such as, you get recognized in your ensembles and get picked to help your ensembles in many ways.

If you are interested in joining Tri-M, reach out to Mr. Belding and/or Mr. Desrochers for more information.
