West Orange Schools & Education

Public & Private Institutions Of Learning

The West Orange Public School District is made up of 11 schools: seven elementary schools (K-5), one central six (6), two middle schools (7-8), and one high school (9-12). The diversity and individualized education of the 7,000+ student body is a great strength to the district and contributes to the success of each student. The maintenance of class size has led to one of the lowest teacher-to-student ratios in the state.

The seven elementary schools are:

  • Gregory Elementary
  • Hazel Elementary
  • Mount Pleasant Elementary
  • Pleasantdale Elementary
  • Redwood Elementary
  • St. Cloud Elementary
  • Washington Elementary

The elementary schools provide a learning environment that "enhances the intellectual, social, emotional and physical development of the whole child." Students are encouraged to develop self-confidence and independence as learners, in a safe, nurturing educational environment.

The Thomas A. Edison School is the central six middle school. Here, children are immersed in real-life situations to help them relate to what they are learning. The two other middle schools are:

  • Liberty Middle School
  • Roosevelt Middle School

The complete development of the student is fostered through core content areas of math, language arts, science and social studies, with related arts courses as well. Students are also encouraged to participate in after-school activities. During their middle school years, students develop critical thinking skills needed to become independent learners.

The West Orange High School "challenges and encourages students to strive for excellence through rigorous and comprehensive programs, to become active members of their community, and to emerge as lifelong learners."
