The West Orange High School Social Studies Department is dedicated to working collaboratively to engage our students in the critical analysis of historical and contemporary issues to foster the development and growth of caring and interested citizens. Our department goal is to provide a comprehensive program that meets the needs of our diverse learners. To this end, we have structured a wide-ranging program of study with courses that reflect the multiple interests and needs of our students. Please take a look at our program offerings. We offer perhaps the most comprehensive array of courses in New Jersey!
