Waterloo West High School Mascot
The Waterloo West High WAHAWK name is derived from Waterloo (WA), and Black Hawk County (HAWK). The school mascot initially was a student dressed in indian attire, and who attended pep rallies, sporting events, and general school assemblies.

More recently, the school has adopted "WESTY" - a hawk like character, who also is represented by a student attending West High.

Waterloo West High School ALMA MATER
Where the rolling plains of Iowa
Meet the Cedar’s stream
Stands our dear old Alma Mater
High in our esteem.


“Duty, Honor, Service” always
May they never die
Hail to thee, our Alma Mater
Hail, all hail, West High

Comrades, classmates, friends we rally!
“Loyalty” we cry?
Pledge our hearts and hands to honor
Our beloved West High

Chorus: Repeated

From our hall still echo footsteps
Of alumni true:
Holding high our honored banner
They, our faith renewed

Chorus: Repeated
