Our school mascot is a variant spelling of “dreadnought”, a battleship that was built during the beginning of the 20th century. The new dreadnought ship was so much quicker and more heavily armed than any ship before it, that it quickly became a symbol of national power.
We embody that power through the success and achievement of our students in academics and extracurricular activities.
