English and civics/social studies teacher Cecil Sims was one of the first and best-remembered Hart High School faculty members.
Known as "Father Hart," he oversaw ASB activities, directed the Key Club and penned the Hart High alma mater, "All Hail, Hart High,"
as well as the fight song:
On to victory, Hart High Indians. Let us fight to win this game.
We're loyal Hart High Indians and we're proud to bear the name.
We will wave our banners proudly as we honor the Red and Black.
Doing our best to play fair all the way.
Let us fight with all our might
Onward you Hart High Indians
Conquer the Foothill League
You stalwarts on to victory.
Fight, Fight, Fight, Fight, Fight, Fight, Fight
Lead us to victory.
Fight, Fight Go Hart Go!
Bring another win back home.
