The Foxborough High School Chapter of the National Art Honor Society (NAHS) is designed specifically for high school students in grades 10-12. In 1978, the National Art Education Association began the National Art Honor Society program to inspire and recognize students who have shown an outstanding ability and interest in art. The NAHS strives to aid members in attaining the highest standards in art scholarship, character, and service.
