NEHS is composed of a select group of students based upon their academic achievements, as well as their personal achievements in both the classroom and their communities. We begin regular meetings each year after the UIL A+ Contests have completed. Our School Charter instructs us to complete two service projects each year, one in the fall and one in the spring. As sixth graders, our direct community is Crockett, and we love spending time boosting the moral of all the students. Due to the large number of students in our organization, we split them into four “houses” which represent the four qualities of NEHS.
