Thank you for visiting. We are proud of our school.

Tippecanoe High School is an outstanding place to learn! Tippecanoe High School was named one of the Top 500 High Schools in the U.S. by Newsweek. Tipp City students consistently rank among the top in the Miami Valley area in state assessments and college entrance exams. Eighty-five percent of our graduates in the Class of 2015 continued their education at colleges, universities or vocational schools.

THS offers a rigorous program of studies, including accelerated and Advanced Placement courses. We are also partnered with Urbana University so that our students can earn college credit while taking classes right here at our building taught by our teachers! Our graduates consistently tell us they were well-prepared for college as a result of their education here. Our music program features a marching band, concert band and jazz band, a symphonic choir, and a concert choir.

Students at Tippecanoe have an opportunity to choose from a wide variety of co-curricular and extracurricular activities. We have a strong Academic Team that has been an Ohio and National standout for several years and compete throughout the Midwest. We have a local chapter of National Honor Society, a student senate, and clubs that cater to specific interests, such as Chess Club, Drama Club, Outdoor Club and more. Our theater productions are an outstanding showcase for our talented students.

Our athletic teams compete in the Central Buckeye Conference. In 2016 we will become the newest member of the Greater Western Ohio Conference. We offer ten varsity sports for both men and women, plus cheerleading.

The high school also is affiliated with the Miami Valley Career Technology Center, which offers 47 vocational programs and Tech Prep courses of study as an alternative to the general and college preparatory education programs. For more information you may link directly to their site from our website's home page.

While we are proud of the attributes we can list on paper, we are even prouder of that intangible quality called spirit. You can feel it in the classrooms and hallways, see it on the playing fields, hear it from our student musicians. Our students and our staff are proud of the tradition of excellence in Tipp City Schools. Spirit abounds at Tippecanoe High School and throughout the school district.

Come let us show you around. We know you will like what you see!

    MISCELANEOUS

    Mr. Derge is looking for teacher assistants next semester 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th period to anyone who is interested. This is a great opportunity for seniors looking to get into education. Please stop by room 120 if interested.

    Friends for Change, the former FOR club, is asking all students and staff to participate in their January project.  In first period today, students will be asked to complete a paper that incorporates ideas they would like to share,  things they need and want, and how they are going to succeed in 2017.  It is optional to put your name on the paper as these will be displayed around the school.  Students who in the next few weeks submit proof such as pictures, documents, etc that they are fulfilling these goals will be entered into a raffle to win prizes.  See your guidance counselor for details. Thank you THS for sharing your 2017 goals.

    Mark your calendars for the THS Parents Who Care AfterProm Fundraiser night at the Chick-fil-A restaurant on Benchwood (Miller Lane) in Vandalia on Monday, January 23 from 5:00-8:00 pm. A portion of the profits from the night's sales will go to PWC to support the AfterProm which will be held at Scene 75, immediately following Prom on Saturday, May 20. See you there!

    If you would like to be added or deleted to our morning announcement via email please send a message to Ms. Rowe at marowe@tippcity.k12.oh.us.
