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."
