Alma Mater
In our beautiful Van’s Valley
Lies our school so dear
While the cave and spring and mountains
Give it beauty here;
High above the winding water
All reared against the sky
Has stood our Alma Mater
As the years have passed by
Hail to thee, GSD, Hail!
Raise your voices with your hands in harmony
Send them higher
And let your praises ring
Hail to thee, GSD, our Alma Mater
