The Wildcat logo is comprised of three Ws representing the triple-W of Woodrow Wilson Wildcats (one set on the wildcat’s forehead, and one set on each cheek). The tongue of the Wildcat is intended to be a subtle representation of a heart, referring to the school motto, “Keep Thy Heart With All Diligence” which appears over the auditorium stage and has been part of the school since its opening in 1928.
