The National Society of High School ScholarsNSHSS

Learn. Lead. Change the World.

Behind every high-achieving student, there is a team of dedicated educators setting rigorous standards, offering constant encouragement and going the extra mile to ensure each student fulfills his/her unique potential.  NSHSS salutes and recognizes the contributions of exemplary educators—teachers, counselors, administrators—through a variety of opportunities designed to engage them in the work of NSHSS and further their professional growth and development.

We invite educators to become involved in NSHSS by attending our member events, sharing their insights and expertise through guest articles or blog posts and nominating qualified students for membership in the Society. 

You can register as an educator here.  Once registered, you can nominate your students for membership online and take advantage of other educator-specific opportunities.  If you prefer to nominate students by phone, please call 866.343.1800.  Our staff will be happy to answer any questions you may have about the nomination process or the benefits of membership.
