School Challenge

Ben E Mays Crest
  • The world belongs to us,
    And we will accept the challenge
    To represent the global community in a caring way.

    We are the ultimate students.
    We renew our quest for excellence everyday
    By being inquirers and critical thinkers.

    We pledge to be open-minded, well-balanced,
    And to live by high ideals and principles.

    We strive to be responsible risk-takers
    Who believe that “It is not a disgrace not to reach the stars,
    But it is a disgrace to have no stars to reach for."

    Knowledge will be our goal.
    Reflection and communication will be our means
    For making this world a better place.
    We are the ultimate students.
    The world belongs to us,
    The future belongs to us and
    Today begins with us!
