NJHS APPLICATION PROCESS 2020
NON-AISD/PERSONAL EMAIL ADDRESSES WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED!
APPLICATIONS WILL BE AVAILABLE FEBRUARY 18 AND

APPLICATION DIRECTIONS FOUND ON GOOGLE CLASSROOM
STEP 1: COMPLETE THE APPLICATION
The next step is the application process, which you can complete on the google doc attached to this post. You MUST read and follow the application directions. Please note: eligibility DOES NOT guarantee acceptance, nor does simply filling out the application. You must also earn enough points (based on your teacher recommendations) in order to be invited to join.
Be sure to proofread/edit your application before submitting, as changes may not be made afterward.
STEP 2: TEACHER RECOMMENDATIONS
The final step will be to ask each of your teachers (all 8) to complete a recommendation form. Teachers will be doing this online, but you have to make a personal request for them to do so.
YOU MUST WRITE A LETTER TO EACH OF YOUR TEACHERS REQUESTING THIS RECOMMENDATION. Your letter must include a salutation, one complete paragraph explaining why you want to be a member of NJHS and one statement requesting a recommendation from that teacher. Make sure to include your first and last name and class period in your closing.
Each letter should be sealed in an envelope and addressed to the receiving teacher. Your first and last name and class period should be on the front of the envelope under the teacher's name.
Please note: teachers will be rating you in the areas of LEADERSHIP, SERVICE, CHARACTER, AND CITIZENSHIP. You MUST earn 90% of the teacher recommendation points for your application to be processed.
You MUST request a recommendation from ALL of your current teachers. If you choose not to complete this aspect of the application, a score of zero will be input for the missing recommendations.
Remember, your grades qualify you to APPLY; your application AND teacher recommendations earn you an invitation to JOIN. Recommendations are based on the way you represent yourself in the classroom. These recommendations can be the deciding factor for your acceptance.
STEP 3: NOTIFICATION OF ACCEPTANCE/DENIAL
Notification of acceptance/denial will be sent to your school email by the end of April. Announcements will also be made when notifications have been sent.
PLEASE NOTE: Only students on the eligibility list can apply. In addition, if you have received an administrative referral this year, you may be ineligible for acceptance. For additional information, please review the GorzyckiNJHS By.laws in the Materials Sections for the Application Process.
