National Honor Society

The National Honor Society is a national organization open to 10th, 11th, and 12th grade students who excel in the areas of academics, leadership, service, and character. The moderator for the club is Mrs. Dolores Toledo.
It is comprised of students who have achieved a minimum of a 3.5 cumulative grade point average and who exhibit the qualities of character, scholarship, leadership, and service as determined by a Faculty Council. Members must maintain at least a 3.5 grade point average, have attended at least 3 meetings per semester and completed 35 hours of community service in NHS sponsored projects to retain their membership status in this honor society. A student may not have any scores of 2 or 3 in the categories of conduct and/or effort on his final report card for the academic year.

Belen Jesuit Preparatory School was founded in 1854 in Havana, Cuba by Queen Isabel II of Spain.  The task of educating students was assigned to the priests and brothers of the Society of Jesus (the Jesuits), whose teaching tradition is synonymous with academic excellence and spiritual discipline.  In 1961, the new political regime of Cuba confiscated the School property and expelled the Jesuit faculty.  The School was re-established in Miami the same year, and over the next decade, continued to grow.  Today, Belen Jesuit sits on a 30-acre site in western Dade County, only minutes away from downtown Miami.
