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'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. For more information about the event, please contact Benjamin Brigham, English Teacher and Technology Coordinator at Shead High School, at email@example.com.
