    i know a lot of schools require community service in high school, and i as wondering how many hours you're required to do per year? what kid of community service do you do? i'm only in 8th grade and haven't been able to find out how many hours we'e required to do yet, but orientation is this tuesday so i'll find out then. whats your opinion on community service being required?

    To graduate, none are required. However, if you want to try and be in National Honor Society....you need at least 50. And it just depends on how many you want for college applications...

    To graduate from high school, you need at least 100 hours over the 4 year span in 4 different areas. Which means, you can't just spend all 100 hours doing the same thing, it has to be 4 different things. :(

    Wow..I never thought it could be required. I've volunteered to wrap gifts, stuffed envelopes, and do most during the summer at our library, but some of what i've done has been with dance.
