Howard County high schools are standardized in many ways - bell schedules, cafeteria lunches and county curriculums to name a few. However, the selection process for admission to the National Honor Society, as well as member expectations and service requirements, is different at all 12 high schools. The only standardization the county has for entry into the honor society is a cumulative minimum 3.4 grade-point average. Most schools use teacher recommendations, a personal essay and a list of extracurricular activities to determine a student's eligibility for entry.
