Country School Students Inducted into the National Honor Society

By: Annie Hasselgren
On October 29, 2019, nine Country School alumni were inducted into the National Honor Society at The Gunston School.

The Gunston School honored several students this morning, including nine Country School graduates. Inductees have demonstrated achievement in the following four pillars:

  • Scholarship: A cumulative GPA of 85, B, 3.0 on a 4.0 scale, or equivalent standard of excellence.
  • Service: Voluntary contributions to the school or community, done without compensation.
  • Leadership: Resourceful, good problem solvers, and idea contributors. Leadership experiences can be drawn from school or community activities while working with or for others.
  • Character: The student of good character is cooperative; demonstrates high standards of honesty and reliability; shows courtesy, concern, and respect for others; and generally maintains a clean disciplinary record.

These pillars directly align with The Country Schools 9 core values, woven into our curriculum and daily conversations throughout our students' careers here. It is our mission to graduate students who will continue on to high school as focused, thoughtful, driven individuals with a commitment to service, leadership, and character, and we congratulate these nine students who continue to do their best always.
