The coed Queen of Peace High School in North Arlington gave the clean-language oath to some boys on Monday.

The school made news last week when many of its female students swore they would not swear. But the school-sponsored campaign left out boys.

The Record  reports that school officials won't say how many boys agreed to clean up their language.

Unlike the girls' ceremony, the swearing-in for boys was closed to the media.
