Onward Ever Upward.
To be a learning institution that inspires excellence and achievement.
Onward to the flight!
Onward, ever upward,
Upward to the light!
Onward , Parkinsonian,
Life's long journey will be long,
But onward, ever upward,
We will never fall
In this place we train the young,
Barriers to success knock down!
We lift their heads and strengthen stride
Pushing forward like a raging tide
With honest effort cheerful thought
We vow to serve each other's cause;
Truth and care in our hearts so dear
To their plan our thrusts remain
