Welcome to Tippecanoe High School!
Home of the Red Devils615 E. Kessler-Cowlesville Road Tipp City, Ohio 45371
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 high schools in the country by US News & World Report. 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 2018 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 and the University of Cincinnati through Sinclair 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 Miami Valley League. We offer ten varsity sports for 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, and 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!

If you did not turn in your graduation order Jostens will be back on Tuesday, November 19th before school in the commons. This will be the last chance to order. Please bring in your order form and $75 down payment. Extra packets are available in the office.
The Clubhouse is looking for student volunteers. This is a tutoring program is offered at the Avenue and the intern helping run the program right now is a Tipp Alumni Sam Brumfield. Sessions are from 9/23-10/24, 11/11-12/5, 1/27-2/27, 3/16-5/7, and 6/15-7/29. Sessions run from 3:45-5:15 pm on Monday, Tuesday and Thursdays. As a volunteer you’d be working with students from Broadway and LT Ball that attend the Clubhouse. This could be a great opportunity for seniors to get their 10 hours of service and although session 1 is underway I believe they are in need of volunteers. Contact Cheryl Bender, Director at 937-667-1069 x274 or email email@example.com.
Seniors make sure you are logging your portfolio hours. You need to complete 10 hours of a job shadow or community service experience by the end of first semester. Please turn in completed logs and your reflections to your advisor, if you do not have an advisor please turn in to your counselor.
Due to the level of achievement, by all of the fall sports teams this year, and out of respect for the boys' soccer team playing for a State Championship on Sunday, we have decided to postpone the Fall Sports Awards Night from November 12th and move it to Monday, November 18th at 6:30pm in the HS gym. We apologize if this creates any issues for all of those affected, but we want to make sure that the evening recognizes all of the accomplishments that are so deserve. Winter programs will need to make changes to their practice schedules on the 18th. Thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding. Tippecanoe Administration Red Devils!!!

Starting today through Friday, November 22nd everyone in the building is invited to stop in the LMC and add a Leaf of Gratitude to the LMC Thankful Tree. The tree always starts out bare and Mrs. Wickline's goal is to have it covered with colorful leaves before the end of the day on Friday, November 22nd. Feel free to stop in anytime and 'leaf' a message expressing what you are grateful for this year.
