Who We Are

Why the International Honors Society?

International Honor Society (IHS) membership has been the true mark of student achievement for over 100 years, but it goes far beyond a report card. By empowering, championing, and recognizing well-rounded students, IHS provides schools with a values-based framework to elevate a culture of scholarship, service, leadership, and character.

IHS chapters operate in 87 countries around the world, engaging and serving more than 10 million students. Each year, the average IHS chapter contributes:

  • 10,000 hours of school/community service
  • $1,000,000 scholarship opportunities for students
