Hello! I'm glad to hear you're interested in expanding your involvement in national honor societies. There are several well-regarded honor societies beyond the National Honor Society (NHS). Here's a list of some reputable ones you might want to consider:

1. National Junior Honor Society (NJHS): If you are a middle-school student, the NJHS is an excellent choice. It focuses on leadership, scholarship, and community service.

2. National Art Honor Society (NAHS): Perfect for students who excel in the arts and are engaged in community service initiatives related to visual arts. Some chapters may also offer opportunities for exhibitions and portfolios.

3. National English Honor Society (NEHS): Ideal for strong English students, this society promotes community service initiatives related to literacy, writing, and language learning.

4. Mu Alpha Theta: A mathematics honor society for students who excel in mathematics and participate in related activities, like math competitions and tutoring.

5. Science National Honor Society (SNHS): This one is aimed at students with outstanding achievements in the field of science, offering opportunities to participate in research and science-related community service projects.

6. Social Studies Honor Society (Rho Kappa): Ideal for students who excel in the social sciences, offering opportunities for civic engagement, community service, and the study of social studies.

7. National Spanish Honor Society (Sociedad Honoraria Hispánica): If you're passionate about the Spanish language and culture, this honor society puts an emphasis on scholarship and community service related to Spanish-speaking communities.

8. National French Honor Society (Société Honoraire de Français): Similar to the Spanish society, this one celebrates students who excel in the study of French language and culture; it encourages scholarship and French-related community service.

9. Tri-M Music Honor Society: Excellent for students who have a passion for music and community service, this society focuses on recognizing achievements in music and promoting music education.

Each of these honor societies has its own application process and selection criteria. Check with your school to see which organizations have local chapters, or visit the national websites for each society to learn about starting a chapter.

Note that the benefits of joining an honor society typically include recognition for your academic accomplishments, opportunities for community service and volunteer work, and connections with peers who share similar interests. Having honor society memberships on your college application demonstrates a dedication to learning, leadership, and community engagement. Good luck with your applications!
