National Honor Society
National Honor Society is designed for outstanding students across the United States. Marlette is proud to have been affiliated with this organization for over 25 years. The purpose of National Honor Society is to give students who have high grades, excellent leadership potential, good moral character, and a willingness to serve their school and community, an opportunity to further enhance these qualities. Students are nominated and chosen by the Marlette High School Faculty and once inducted into the organization, must maintain high standards throughout their high school career.
Students increase leadership abilities by participating in the Student Council. The council organizes and sponsors homecoming activities, guest speakers, pep assemblies, fund raisers, and more.
