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.
THS offers a rigorous program of studies, including accelerated and Advanced Placement courses. We are also partnered with Franklin University, Sinclair 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.
Go Red Devils!

RED DEVIL OF THE WEEK
Annie is exactly the type of student that embodies "Tradition of Excellence." Not only is she a fantastic student who consistently does her work and asks for help when she needs it, she excels in sports and theatre too. Annie was recently cast in a lead role in the school musical and she was an absolute blast to work with as her choreographer. Annie was so on top of things that she even knew other characters' lines and stage work! Keep it up Annie! -Mrs. Rhoton
Please see attached! The Boosters Association is hosting their 1st Annual Tippecanoe Spirit Wear contest.
Our Covid protocols will remain in place until the end of the year. Here's a message from the Governor that was sent out as an update:
Dear Education Leader,
Thank you for your hard work this year to provide safe and healthy in-person educational opportunities to Ohio’s students. As you may have seen, the Centers for Disease Control recently revised their recommendations around mask guidance for individuals who are fully vaccinated. While Ohio will be amending its health orders to comply with this new CDC guidance, in order to maintain consistency and model safe behavior for Ohio’s students, these changes do not affect the existing order requiring the use of facial coverings and other health protocols in our schools. With limited numbers of students vaccinated, it is important that we continue these safety measures through the end of the current school year. I appreciate the efforts that you have undertaken locally to protect students and I look forward to continuing to work together for Ohio’s kids.
Governor Mike DeWine
