WEST ORANGE, NJ – More than 30 West Orange High School (WOHS) students will be decorated with a special cord when they graduate on June 22 after being recently inducted into the World Languages Honor Society for Chinese, French, Italian and Spanish.

Beginning in September, the four World Languages will be available as full-year courses at Liberty and Roosevelt Middle Schools in both seventh and eighth grades.

"Our community is already very diverse, but we want our students to succeed in a global market," said Principal Hayden Moore. "We took a serious and strong stand on World Language here at West Orange High School and in our middle schools as well.”
