WEST ORANGE, NJ – In the inaugural year of distributing the New Jersey Department of Education (NJDOE) Seal of Biliteracy, 19 West Orange High School seniors have received it.

The distinction is awarded to those high school seniors who are able to speak, read, listen and write in two or more languages at a high level of proficiency. In order to be eligible for the Seal of Biliteracy, students needed to demonstrate a proficiency level of Intermediate Mid in a World Language and meet New Jersey State high school graduation requirements in English as measured by State ELA assessments or its alternatives. 

The 19 WOHS students (9 ESL; 10 world language) who received the Seal of Biliteracy from the NJDOE will receive a certificate signed by the governor as well as an insignia affixed to their transcript. This award generated a high level of student motivation in both the World Language and ESL departments to increase their proficiency levels and will serve them well in their future endeavors.
