Gilman School Song


Oh Gilman Oh Gilman


To you we will be true


Our loyalty and honor


Are to the Grey and Blue


You build up our minds


Our hearts and spirits too


Forever our Gilman


We pledge ourselves to you


We're forging ahead


And reaching far beyond


With Gilman our strength


And brotherhood our bond


When we leave these walls


With memories we hold dear


It's Gilman's proud echoes


That in our hearts we'll hear


(By Mrs. Cathy E. Miles, in dedication to Mr. Ronald L. Culbertson)
