The school is encouraging all parents, students, and alumni to learn the MEI School Song.

Here are the lyrics:

We stand tall and proud as we uphold
The tradition of the blue, white, and gold
The song resounding can be heard near and far
From the hearts of who we are.
We are the Eagles now watch us SCORE as we SOAR onto victory WE WILL FLY
We are the Eagles of the Institute WOOT, WOOT
We are the Eagles of M……E……I
