Principal's Page
               Mr. Derek Pugh               

Welcome to the J.F. Shields website. The purpose of this web-page is to provide parents, students, and our school community with easy access to a wealth of information on our J.F. Shields High School programs, policies, and activities.

J.F. Shields High School is a great place to teach and learn! Our teachers are committed to a high quality learning experience focused on the individual needs of each child. We are striving to be creative and innovative in our instruction to engage students in their learning through a variety of STEAM activities, applications of technology, and 21st Century skills.

Our school community has a long standing tradition of excellence in academics, athletics, and the arts. At J.F. Shields, we are committed to our mission of preparing students to be productive citizens and life-long learners in an ever changing world.

Our primary goal is to help all students achieve their dreams and find success in pursuing life goals. We are unconditionally committed to providing the best possible educational program to our students. We believe that there are numerous opportunities, both within our curricula and through extracurricular activities, for our students to gain the skills that will allow them to be successful in their lives after high school.  Students may now participate in the Key Club, Student Council, Peer Mentoring, After School Tutoring, etc.  We feel that offering students roles in leadership will prepare them for a future in leadership.  

If you need general information or wish to directly contact staff at the high school, you may use the Staff Directory on the website or call (251) 789-2168.

Go Panthers!

Sincerely,



Derek Pugh
