Its mascot is Otis the Fighting Scot and students refer to themselves as "Scots," or the "Highlanders," a reference to the Clan Gordon.
The Highlander Marching band consists of over 100 musicians accompanied by Highland Dancers and Flags. The band members wear the traditional kilt and uniform of the Clan Gordon. The Highlander Marching Band has performed in numerous local, national and international parades and events, and won many prestigious awards.

The drum line is the heart of the band and its members are distinguished by their red jackets.
