A Legacy of Loyalty and Spirit: Bel Air High School
"Opened in 1957, Bel Air High School stands as a testament to the enduring traditions that have shaped generations. With colors that proudly display the vibrant Red and Blue, the spirit of unity and determination is woven into every aspect of the school's fabric. The distinctive Hamilton Red Tartan represents not only a pattern but a symbol of the strong bonds that connect the students and community.
Motto: 'Loyal Forever' encapsulates the unwavering dedication that students, alumni, and faculty have exhibited throughout the years. Just as the Wooden Highlander, Tam O’Shanter, stands tall with a sense of history and pride, so do the Highlanders of Bel Air High School, embracing their past as they stride towards the future.
The stirring Bel Air Fight Song, a rallying cry that echoes through the halls, captures the essence of the school's spirit. 'Hail the Highlanders of Bel Air High,' it proclaims, honoring the relentless efforts of those who strive for excellence. From Freshmen to Seniors, united under the banner of 'Do or Die,' they exemplify the spirit of resilience and unity. With each note of the fight song, the wearers of Red and Blue are reminded of their tried and true spirit, igniting the fire of determination within.
As we embark on a journey through the history and traditions of Bel Air High School, let us remember the echoes of the past, celebrate the present, and march forward with the same resounding cheer: 'Oh, fight, you, Bel Air Fight, you Highlanders, Fight!'"
