    C.R.I.S. School Song

    In a dream that we can see, our dream starts here and now,

    the place where we start to fly.

    Here we gather in this school,

    tomorrows hope we have in our hearts vision.

    The hope we have,

    the power we behold, is the trust we have within,

    for the world we seize in hand.

    Chorus: Opening our hearts, filling with the truth together,

    we embrace the world

    with a heart wide open, take the world in our arms,

    fulfilling our hope and dreams.

    We are the ones who will lead the way with love,

    the students of C.R.I.S .

    Sometimes when we run to reach our endless dream,

    the darkness might tempt our heart.

    The troubles in our way will never stop us moving,

    and on the trail will fade away.

    Even challenges we face continue moving on, then a bright day comes along,

    Opening our minds, knowing that we have a secret no one perceives.
