Alma Mater

Jaguars roaring by and by
Of red, black and white
Ardor, courage, truth abide
Forever swelling, unrelenting pride
In honor of our might our cries arise
Where we did unite
West Florida High

 

We pledge our allegiance to
She who led us through
Lessons with relation to
The fields which we'd pursue
The threshold of our lives is breaching nigh
The memoirs of our time
West Florida High

 

Our ambitions realized
To which we had aspired
Jaguar spirit is recognized
Established and admired
Amidst the lofty pines tradition lies
For as the years go by
West Florida High
