About the Honor Societies

Each language honor society has its own history and objectives. LHS established its chapter of the National Chinese Honor Society in 1997. Founded in 1993, by the Chinese Language Association of Secondary-Elementary Schools, the Society was created for students of the secondary schools in the United States.  The objective of the Society is to recognize the academic excellence of the students of the Chinese language and culture.

Founded in1953, by the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese, the Spanish Honor Society was created for students of North American secondary schools.  Livingston’s chapter began in 1978 thanks to the efforts of Mrs. Eva Gerson.

The French Honor Society was established about 25 years ago, and the Livingston Chapter has been active since that time. The American Association of Teachers of French founded the National group.

The Italian Honor Society recognizes those students who have shown a profound interest in the Italian language and culture and have made great strides, while studying Italian.
