National Junior Honor Society
The “Obispo Chapter” is subject to the rules and regulations of the National Junior Honor Society, a program administered by the National Association of Secondary School Principals.
Membership in the NJHS is based upon five qualities: scholarship, leadership, service, character and citizenship. Membership is a privilege, not a right. Academic excellence alone does not guarantee membership in the NJHS.
1. Scholarship – a student must maintain a 90% cumulative average in the core subjects.
2. Leadership/Service – a student must be actively involved in service to the school and community and must demonstrate leadership traits.
3. Character/Citizenship – a student must demonstrate high standards of character and citizenship.
The NJHS faculty council makes the selection of the members based on the above requirements and the overall behavior/conduct of the students in and out of the classroom as noted on the survey of the students’ teachers.
A student referred to the administration for a serious infraction of school regulations and policies may jeopardize his/her selection.
A student who is already a member of the NJHS and has been disciplined for a serious infraction of school rules, regulations and policies may be dismissed. A member is allowed one warning/ probationary period.
The school is not obliged to divulge or share with parents/guardians and students information concerning non-selection of any student to membership of the NJHS.
The Obispo Chronicle provides the opportunity for students to develop skills in journalism through periodic reporting of school activities.
Stu-co officers and representatives are elected to represent the student body, to develop in the student the knowledge of democratic principles and procedures, and to foster character, responsibility and leadership traits.
Team Sport (Boys & Girls)
The “Obispos” participate in a number of interscholastic games including basketball, volleyball, soccer, cross-country, rugby and cheerleading. BBMCS participates in the Independent Interscholastic Athletic Association of Guam (IIAAG) and is subject to the guidelines and requirements of the IIAAG.
The yearbook provides students with the opportunity to develop skills in the field of graphic arts by organizing a compilation of photographs, activities and stories of school personnel and students throughout the year.
