The message portrayed by the Crest always serves as a driving force and inspiration for both teachers and students.  The pioneering staff of the school are credited with design of such a crest.  The crest is made up of the eagle, a book, and a pen, which indicates that students are expected to be sharp-sighted, keen and enduring in their academic work.  The motto “AIM HIGH” implies that the sky should be the limit for students in their academic pursuit and never to pave way for mediocrity or complacency.
