National Honor Society 2016-2017

Membership in the National Honor Society (NHS) is one of the highest honors that can be awarded to a high school student. Our chapter of NHS has worked hard to bring the accomplishments of outstanding students to the attention of parents, teachers, peers, and the community. Our chapter and the more than 16,000 chapters in schools across the nation strive to give practical meaning to the Society’s standards of scholarship, leadership, service, and character.

The faculty board selects members from the applicants that demonstrate the best A.G.B.U. MDS has to offer in terms of scholarship, leadership, service, and character. Typically those selected have an average of 25 hours of community service per year, have held at least one peer leadership position, and have excellent character references from their teachers.

Our NHS chapter was established in 2015 with 11 members. This year, our membership increased to 17. Our chapter members meet once a week to plan and carry out service projects at our school and in our communities. Last year they worked to build character and leadership skills with our 8th graders and visited profit organizations like Homeboy Industries who work to empower vulnerable groups.

Congratulations to this year's NHS members: Christine Keshishyan, Monica Khachatrian, Alina Lalikyan, Alan Amirian, Raffi Balci, Adriana Bakalian, Talia Ajemian, Ara Laterovian, Elizabeth Cholakyan, Ashley Pezikian, Taleen Soleimani, Lilia Yaralian, Alexandra Yaralian, and Isabel Zavian. A special thanks to all of the family, friends, alumni, faculty, and staff whose attendance helped make this year's ceremony so special!


This year we are thrilled to bring chess into the classroom. A game that is thousands of years old and an Armenian national pastime, chess teaches countless valuable lessons: critical thinking, strategy, flexibility, creative problem solving, processing loss, learning from errors, respecting opponents, decision making, and much more.
