Statement of PurposeThis society honors the accomplishments of our excellent science students at Freedom High School. This society will promote collaboration between students, provide extra support for our in school science fair, and most importantly it demonstrates that all students can be successful in science.SNHS Vision
America has been honoring brilliant students through honor societies since 1921.Educators began to notice the need for subject specific honor societies in America’s high schools in the 1980's. Since then, new honor societies have sprung up to recognize and encourage students in such areas as English, Art,French, and Spanish. Until now, there has been no national honor society for Science. In this era of rapidly changing technologies and scientific advancement, it is time to encourage and recognize high school students in the Sciences.
