Dear Alma Mater be our guide, reveal to us the way.
Then we will stand both proud and strong to learn more day by day.
Enshrined in each and ev’ry heart are mem’ries of the year.
We glory in thyself apart and lift your name to hear.
Oh Spruce Creek High we sing thy praise of feelings that we know.
Thy honor, pride, and loving ways, within us we will show.
All glory to the mighty Hawks, the orange, the black, the white.
With lifted wing we soar above; protect us on our flight.
