National Elementary Honor Society

Mammoth Heights Elementary is proud to host a chapter of the National Elementary Honor Society here on our campus beginning with the 2016-17 school year. We are one of the first elementary schools in the State of Colorado to be recognized with a chapter of the NEHS!

National Elementary Honor Society is a club that honors students for demonstrating citizenship, leadership, service, scholarship and character. Students who excel academically and model exceptional responsibility can become members through a local selection process that concludes with induction into the school’s National Elementary Honor Society Chapter. Membership provides an outstanding means to prepare and shape students for their middle level and high school experiences.
