Why is it important for me to take pride in my school? What is School Pride/School Spirit? School Spirit and Pride come from within you. When you are involved at school you feel a sense of belonging to our school community.
“Students feel like their school is “Number One” when they sense a strong attachment— a feeling of belonging to something special. The school with the most “spirit” is not necessarily the one with the loudest pep rallies, or the most championship teams, or the most posters in the gym at the game time. But rather, the most spirited school is the one that has the largest percentage of students who feel like they belong, like it’s their school, too.”
