School SongEdit

 We praise thee alma mater
 A light throughout our days.
 Inspiring us to greater goals
 Thy standards high we raise!
                                                
 Thy royal blue and scarlet
 Unfurled in noblest pride.
 We honor thee, dear Wolfson
 Our mentor,  friend, and guide!
