We believe cheerleading teaches teamwork, setting and reaching goals, work ethic, sacrifice, determination, leadership skills and resilience. We believe those who have character, work hard, and have a good attitude are the most successful in whatever they do, and in learning these qualities in high school prepares students to succeed later in life. These values are expected to be present so we can have fun, be safe, work hard, and develop character that makes us successful.
The cheerleaders of San Marcos High School are athletic spirit leaders of the school. SMHS Cheerleading includes VARSITY and JUNIOR VARSITY cheer squads, mascots, and managers. The administration, coaches, and a booster club support this student organization.
