School Song – Friends Forever

Hail to thee, dear Whittier
Home of friends forever!
Thou art virtuous, Whittier,
In thy endeavor.
Now we charge thee, Whittier,
Home where peace and truth are nourished,
Grant to youth thy spirit ’til
Hopes and dreams have fully flourished.
Forward ever, Whittier;
Falter never, Whittier!
Friends forever, Whittier;
Alma mater, Whittier!
