The vinta, a sturdy Filipino boat, is the PAREF symbol. It stands for the educational philosophy shared by all the schools that belong to the PAREF system.
The stars above the vinta represent the three (3) sectors that comprise the PAREF school community. For the success of the PAREF system with its underlying philosophy, there must be a wholesome interaction among the parents, teachers and students. For formation to be effective, the parents and teachers must themselves be such that they can lead the students by word and deed.
