From Principal Theriault's Desk:

Greetings from Shead High School, "The Destination High School".


My name is Paul Theriault, and I serve as the principal of Shead High School in Eastport, Maine. We are a small, rural, award-winning public high school on the beautiful coast of Maine. If you look at a map of Maine, follow up the coastline to that point at the eastern tip. You will find us there.

I have lived in the Eastport area most of my life. I graduated from Shead High School as did my wife and two daughters. My roots and belief in Shead run deep. I am proud of the work that we do everyday to help students learn and achieve. Being a small school helps us make this happen because of that personal connection between student and teacher. Our mantra is, "We Make it Personal."

Shead High School JMG Students Shine at Career Development Conference


On April 30, 2014, the JMG students from Shead High School took all the information they have learned this year and put it to the test at the Career Development Conference in Augusta. Six JMG juniors and seniors competed in events all day at the Augusta Civic Center. Students were required to dress professionally, create and set up their own booth, participate in events, communicate with judges, and were encouraged to mingle with students from all over the state.

The JMG students from Shead are happy to announce that the results were good! As a collective team at Shead High School, we brought home the Golden Tab Award for collecting the most soda tabs for the state of Maine in an effort to help recycle them for the Ronald McDonald House. Together, we saved over 90,000 tabs (63 pounds)!! The 2014 Career Development Conference was a huge success and plans are already under way for next year!

Many students also won recognition for individual and team efforts. To learn more and see more pictures from the event, please click on the "Read More" link below. read more

Shead High School's Gaming Marathon Fundraiser


On April 12, 2014, Shead High School's "Cultural Studies: Gaming, Narrative and Culture" class and other interested Shead High School students held a 12-hour gaming marathon to raise funds for the Eastport Arts Center and Eastern Maine Medical Center's Child and Adolescent Care Center. Prior to the event, students collected sponsors to contribute funds to these groups. In exchange for the contributions of sponsors, students played video games at Shead High School from 9 am to 9 pm. Twenty-one students particpated in the Gaming Marathon on April 12th, 2014. They played a total of 246 hours of games raised over $2500.

This event would not have been so successful without the hard work of the students and the open hearts of their sponsors. Mr. Brigham sincerely appreciates the great generosity displayed by both the students who tirelessly sought donations and the kind individuals who generously donated to this event. It is truly outstanding that we reached our fundraising goal of $2500 and can provide both the Eastport Arts Center and Eastern Maine Medical Center's Child and Adolescent Care Center with $1250 of support.
