J.F. Shields has long provided a quality education to the students who attended the school. Just about everywhere you go you come across someone who recalls the lessons learned at J.F. Shields. I will always believe that it was my strong and solid foundation in band that helps me to appreciate music of all types today. I can't say enough about the sports and athletic programs at Shields. Walk in the school office any day and the huge number of trophies tells the story. To be a long standing school, the facilities look very well. The level of parent involvement remains remarkable. Most of the parents are alumnus. They take great pride in their Alma mater
