BRACKENRIDGE, BRACKENRIDGE
We are with you heart and soul
We will fight and win our goal
Ranking high you know why;
Just because you carried through
All those things that are great and good
Brackenridge, here's success to you
BHS, o'er the rest
In the game of life we lead
Fighting fair do-or-dare
Thanks to thee and to thy creed
We will go but we know in a pleasant memory
Will be always within our hearts
Of the days we spent with thee

FIGHT SONG

Onward eagles, onward eagles
Fight right through that line
Circle right around those end boys
Touchdown sure this time! Rah! Rah! Rah!
Tackle down them, hold them, ground them
Now let them free
Onward you eagles onto victory
E-E-E-A-G-L-L-E-S
E-A-G-L-E-S
Fight for the purple and white
E-E-E-A-G-L-L-E-S
E-A-G-L-E-S
Fight! Fight! Fight!

Unfortunately, the name change did not please the close-knit alumni of the original Brackenridge campus, many of whom had attended the old school decades earlier, when that area of town was a prominent middle-class neighborhood.
