WEST ORANGE, Nj — Imagine a mixing pot of colors and flavors that work together to make something amazing, here at West Orange High School you don’t have to. Every morning walking into school an array of races, cultures, and ethnicities can be seen gallivanting across the halls. As a Mountaineer, I can say that I am proud to share the same common values as my peers. We are strong, bold people from top down and we wear our pride on our sleeves. No barriers can stand in our way, no ripple can break our stride, and that is what makes us who we are.

As Mountaineers, we stand stronger together and work harder as one. From our athletic achievements in sports, to academic achievements in class, when we stick together we set the bar high. Set atop a mountain, literally, but symbolically we rise above through our united work ethic and emboldened spirits that run through our veins everyday. What it means to be a Mountaineer is the one thing that separates us from the rest of the world. After spending almost four years here I can truly say that it was an honor to be a part of the pack. As they say on the mountain tops, climb on and keep moving forward.
