MCHS Alma Mater
(Click to play or download)

We sing to thee, our Alma Mater
Glory of the west
For thee our steps will never falter;
We will do our best.

The truest friends that we have known
Have learned within thy walls.
The seeds of knowledge have been sown
Within the minds of all.

So Mariposa, Mariposa,
We’ll be true forever;
Thy green and gold that leads us on
Shall guide us, fail us never.



The Alma Mater was written by Evelyn Thompson, class of 1948. There is some indication that the music was written by Kathy Winn, who graduated around the same time


Fight Song

It's Mariposa, it's Mariposa,
The pride of every mountaineer.
Come on you young ones, join with the olds ones
It's Mariposa now we cheer.

Now is the time boys to make a big noise
No matter what the people say.
For there is naught to fear; the gang's all here,
So hail to Mariposa, hail!
