    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!

    Thank you to everyone who donated for 500 Turkeys! We collected a total of 737 pounds of food and over $300 for the needy basket!


    Toys for Tots boxes are outside Ms. Gentry’s room, let’s get those boxes filled!


    Octagon is sponsoring a gift giving program. Please consider donating gift items $5 or less that any child 2 to 16 years of age would enjoy! Bring the items to Mrs. Wirrig’s room, and sign up to be a stocking stuffer!



    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 cbender@ginghamsburg.org.


    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.
