Hail, All Hail West Valley High School
Patron of our student years,
You have taught us all of life’s way,
Shattering all our fears.
Hail! All Hail the school of Knowledge,
Emblem of the fine and true
No matter where we roam
These days are like a poem
That lives on in memory.
Hail, West Valley, Hail to thee!
