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 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 Greater Western Ohio Conference. In the 2019-2020 school year we will become a founding member of the Miami Valley League. 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!
