La Sociedad Honoraria Hispánica is an honor society for the students of North American secondary schools who are enrolled in Spanish and Portuguese courses and who have shown through their work and passion a demonstrated interest in the learning of Spanish and Portuguese. Established in 1953, it is sponsored by the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese and it is comprised by over 1,700 national and international chapters. The purpose of the society is to recognize high achieving high school students as well as to promote interest in Hispanic and Portuguese studies. Lausanne’s Spanish Honor Society chapter, El Greco, was established in 1986.

To be inducted in the Society, students must have received an A in a language in the three consecutive semesters prior to their induction; they must be currently enrolled in a Spanish class; they must be in tenth grade or above; and must have attended Lausanne for at least one year prior to their induction, unless the student is enrolled in level 3 or above.

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.

SNHS is a prominent scientific organization that will engender a new group of young thinkers who will be the future of industry, research and scientific exploration for America.
