  • I went to shea many years ago, I loved the school and it's staff when I was there. Played Volleyball for them and tennis with one of the History teachers. The problem with most schools in Pawtucket is the bullying that goes on, most of it is the parents fault, they just don't seem to care. Which in turn you get people in the school department that feel their hands are tide. I wish Pawtucket would take a stand and say you know something if your child isn't here to learn they you teach them, because we have a lot of kids who do want to be here. Let mom and dad pay for it. But like someone said, Once a Raider always a Raider

  • Shea is one the High School you will never want to graduate from. It has friendly students, although it has some students that are trouble makers but what High School doesn't? The teachers are all leading their students into success by caring for them almost like a family member. Go Raiders Go!

  • ok honestly i went to shea my first 2 years of high school and now i currently am living in Florida. my personal opinion about shea is yes their sports program is the best. almost every sport we were doing good. but education i feel some teachers just should not be there. also there's too much violence. when i was there kids were always getting hurt. but non the less. where ever i am. i am a raider and always be a raider! c/o of 2009
