 Clubs with Select Admission

Preparation for students to become "global citizens" requires learning opportunities for students who can learn from and live with people who have values, experiences, and opinions different from their own.  Research has shown a link between a perceived "negative" environment on a school campus and an increased prevalence of bullying among students. A focus for social justice advocacy is therefore one in which both students and teachers become actively involved in the development of an equity of connectedness and safety across racial, gender, income, and disability groups. A consciousness of equity of this nature is a major attribute of character education and must be accomplished through curricular and instructional approaches.  Thus it is crucial to establish and maintain a school climate of respect and integrity. It includes activities designed for the Wildwood Middle School students and as well a number of adult sponsors serving as both mentors for the students and change agents for the professional staff to accomplish the following goals:

  1. ​The development of critical thinking skills regarding social justice issues with a focus upon understanding: prejudice, discrimination, oppression and racism.
  2. An understanding of the dynamics of oppression, in particular the un-equal distribution and misuse of power.
  3. The creation of student centered activities facilitated by students as well as adult sponsors that promote and support social justice advocacy within the school setting.

Sponsors; Twylaa Taylor, Jennifer Porter, and Karen Covey

NJHS membership honors outstanding students. Eligible students are identified at the beginning of the school year. Once selected, member participation in chapter activities provides opportunities for students to reach their fullest potential at school and in life. All chapters are required to conduct at least one-chapter service project each year and to promote individual service projects for all members. The organizational, leadership, and service learning skills developed through these activities build stronger students.

More than just an honor roll, NHS and NJHS serve to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and Character (and Citizenship for NJHS). These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since their beginnings in 1921 and 1929.
