Charles E. Shea High School, commonly known as Shea High School, is an American secondary school in Pawtucket, Rhode Island. Shea is part of the Pawtucket School Department. The mascot is the "Shea High Raider". The school was named after a well-known Pawtucket resident, Charles E. Shea.

After a low test-score history for some years, the State authorities were going to take control of the school, but good scores in 2006 averted this.[1]

School enrollment is about 1,188 students: 1% Asian, 29% Hispanic, 39% Black, and 31% White.[2]

Pawtucket Mayor Don Grebien attends Shea's graduation every year. Each year the school has a celebrity guest speaker for the graduating class.

LL Cool J and U.S. Representative Patrick Kennedy made a surprise visit to Shea High School in 2005 to talk about the future and school academics. LL Cool J then met with students and signed autographs. [3]
