I moved to Oxford, Ohio in June of 2016. I started my senior year at Talawanda High School in August. I have been to seven different schools in my life, and Talawanda would be first on my list. The academics are great. If you need help there are certain teachers appointed to help at different times. The teachers and students are very welcoming and caring. Starting over your senior year is hard, but they made it easier for me. Mr. Derringer brought me into the FFA group here at Talawanda, and that is where I found my home. Since I've been here I have set better goals for myself, I've applied and been accepted to my dream college. I have made some amazing friends, and met some amazing people. At the end of the day, I wouldn't trade it for anything.

Talawanda High School offers multiple fitness opportunities for both boys and girls, including sports such as lacrosse, hockey, golf, and many more. Sports without a boys and girls team can be co-ed offering opportunity to everyone. Students are very involved in the athletics program, and I would say that about half of the students in the school play some type of sport. As well as being involved, the teams are good! THS is known especially for excellence in women's basketball, track and field, swimming and diving, golf, women's tennis, and volleyball. Having a newer high school has given the school newer facilities allowing sports performance and involvement to increase. The new facilities also offer more practice space for current and new sports teams. To top it all off, the school spirit is off the charts! Who doesn't love to cheer on a good sports team who pulls out a win with all of your classmates?

Very new facilities with a great campus location. Teachers are extremely friendly and more than willing to help students in anyway possible. Many extracurricular activities offered and my time at this school was very enjoyable. The town it is located in is a great place to raise a child as it small and very safe. Many of the students from Talawanda attend the nearby Miami University that offers a numerous amount of majors and is a well respected institution of higher education in the country. Talawanda offers many AP courses as well and also offers a chance to take single courses at the Miami University campus that count towards your college education.
