ALMA MATER
Thy motto, Peary High School, “We Will Find or Make a Way,”
As a Flag unfurled in a snowy world inspires our hearts today
“I will find a way or make one,” our motto e’er will be.
In grateful praise our voices raise, Peary High to thee!

In life’s great strife and turmoil, When with troubles we are tried,
The things that we have learned from thee, Will ever be our guide
“I will find a way or make one,” our motto e’er will be.
In grateful praise our voices raise, Peary High to thee!

And as the North Star glowing is a beacon in the night,
We’ll e’er be true to the navy blue and the snowy arctic white
“I will find a way or make one,” our motto e’er will be.
In grateful praise our voices raise, Peary High to thee!
