New Academic Logo Unveiled

New Academic Logo Unveiled
new logo

Here is the story and the inspiration behind the logo elements:

 

  • The circle: The shape of the circle was kept from the former logo. Our campus address is Yellow Wood Circle, which comes from the famous poem, "The Road Not Taken" by Robert Frost. This poem was used as an inspiration when the school was first established.


  • The three pine trees represent the three schools and our students at different stages; the smallest one on the left represents the Lower School; it is smaller and has fewer boughs than the others, as it is a younger tree.It is firmly placed in the center of the path as it begins its journey at PLP.


  • The Middle School tree is on the right; it has a few more boughs as it's a slightly older tree and progressing further along the path; it is mostly on the path, however, one of its roots is beginning to reach off the path.

     

  • The Upper School tree is the center tree; a more "mature" tree with bigger boughs; it is almost off the path, as this tree (student) is ready to start its own journey.

     

  • The path came from our TRaIL initiative (Teaching Relevance and Innovative Learning) through our partnership with DiscoveryEd. The trail also shows a progression through the three schools and adds a design element of movement from background to foreground and from left to right.

 

  • The gear represents our dedication to STEM, yet it's subtle since it is not our only path.

     

  • The ribbon on either side (Est. 2006) represents the ribbon on a diploma; the ribbons also "open" to show the story inside, much like a curtain opens on a stage.
