SCHOOL CREST AND MASCOT

 
Our school crest consists of a quadrant that includes images of our school's foundational aspects.

Clockwise from top left: 
  • Community collaboration 
  • Academic excellence 
  • Life skills and success 
  • Arts and enrichment education and experiences 

A Bengal Tiger, our school's mascot, looks out over the crest and symbolizes strength/ perseverance, valor, and protection.
