The America’s Most Spirited High School Contest honors one high school that
demonstrates unparalleled school spirit and community pride.
Congratulations to the 2018 America’s Most Spirited High School winner:
Carlsbad High School (Carlsbad, CA)
At Carlsbad High School, school spirit means participating in student activities, cheering on
all sporting teams and groups, dressing from head to toe in purple on game days, and coming together
to form “Lancer Nation”. While students race to secure a spot in the student section immediately after school for a
7 PM game, the spirit doesn’t stop at sporting events. Students organize various programs during lunch to participate
and feel part of a group where they might not normally fit. These students rise above the crowd, and
this has propelled them to create an environment where everyone feels welcome and accepted.
