WEST ORANGE, NJ — Turnout was strong for this year’s West Orange High School (WOHS) freshman orientation, where the high school’s youngest students received their Chromebooks, enjoyed icebreakers and filled out paperwork.

Freshman Orientation runs for two days and offers the opportunity for freshmen to meet teachers and fellow students, get their bearings and complete necessary paperwork. Each student also picked up his or her own Chromebook for use during the school year.

The WOHS Mountaineer Mentors were on hand to help students, run workshops and icebreakers, and offer words of support.

"Freshman Orientation is a great time for our newest Mountaineers to get ready for the new school year and the transition to high school," said WOHS Principal Hayden Moore. "We welcome the Class of 2023 to West Orange High School."
