The purpose of National Honor Society shall be to create an enthusiasm for scholarship, to stimulate a desire to render service, to promote worthy leadership, and to encourage the development of character in the students of Lake Washington High School.

More than just an honor roll, National Honor Society serves as a distinction for those students who have demonstrated excellence in these areas. If selected, members must maintain a high GPA, be enrolled in multiple rigorous classes, and complete 30 hours of community service per year (40 for seniors) as they attend weekly meetings, tutor their peers, and participate in school-wide activities.

For questions regarding National Honor Society, please contact Bethany Shoda.

Peer Editing Program

LW’s National Honor Society is starting up a new Peer Editing program that students can utilize to have their writing proofread and reviewed.

Students can submit a request using the form below, or scan the QR code on one of the flyers posted around the school. They will then be matched with an NHS editor who, ideally, is not in the same class as to prevent any unintentional plagiarism.

All requested feedback will be provided on paper. Freshmen and Sophomores will be required to schedule a conference with their editors, while Juniors and Seniors are given the option.

All of our editors are highly competent and trusted upperclassmen, with experience in a wide range of English classes. We’ve emphasized that they are not to be helping write the essay. Rather, they’ll be suggesting changes to improve what’s already been written.
