J.F. Shields has the spirit and heart of a small community. The teachers go above and beyond for the betterment and well-being of the students they teach. J. F. Shields has a culture so immersive and positive it often feels more like a 4-year university than a public high school.

I loved attending this school because it felt like a family rather than being just a number. We loved showing school spirit and the basketball games were awesome.
I love attend J F Shields High School. The teachers at J F Shields are so helpful and caring. I hate I am graduating on May 22. I would love to continue attend J F Shields because the people there are amazing.
