School Song

Spirit of Sterling Ranger’s stand united, pledged in a common corps.   Wearing a badge of honor, steadfast, forever more.   Spurred with a sense of duty, to ourselves, and to our school.   To search for right and wisdom, to defend the way of truth.   Silver and blue are the standards of our spirit burning bright.   They tell of a proud devotion to the cause for which we fight.   Eager and ready for service, thy name to glorify,  ever to remember the strength of Sterling High!
