Principal's Message

  • Sheffield High School is an exceptional community filled with people from different backgrounds and with different perspectives, but we all have one very important thing in common – supporting our students in their journey to be their best in everything they do.  The energy and enthusiasm of our teachers and students is impressive!  Our histroy is important!  We are proud of our past and respect the many traditions of our Bulldog nation. Our focus is on creating opportunities for our students to excel. Whether it is in the classroom, dual enrollment,  career technical education, art, band, or athletics, Sheffield High Schools strives to provide a wide range of experiences for ALL of our students.  Our students will leave ready for a bright future.  

    I consider it a privilege to serve our community as the principal of SHS.  Without the dedication of teachers, counselors,  coaches, and parents working together, we would not be able to provide the high quality educational experience that makes our school one of the very best. 

    Go Dogs!

    Marcus Rice - Principal
