Tippecanoe Valley High School is striving to provide the best educational opportunities for our students. The Tippecanoe Valley High School website is one tool that we feel is an effective way to keep students, parents, and community members informed of various activities and programs going on here at the high school. We welcome your comments as we continue to refine our website to make it more user friendly. Please take some time to look over the information and let us know how we might better serve you at Tippecanoe Valley High School.
Due to an increase in insurance premium for the 2014-2015 school year, we are posting a new insurance selection form here. Parents that selected a one year policy last year or are new to the HS this year should download and complete a new form by the start of the school year. This form must be completed as well as the 1:1 agreement before the ablets will be distributed to your student. Parents that selected a multi-year policy last year do not need to complete the Insurance Selection form for the current school year. This form can be downloaded here, or you can log into Infosnap and download the updated form from there.
Interested students are encouraged to come to the class where they begin by taking an assessment to determine their level of performance. An educational plan will then be developed for each participant with the goal of taking and passing the GED test.
Similar adult education classes are also offered in Rochester and Warsaw. Please share this information with anyone that might be interested in participating.

The Fulton County Public Library in Rochester has put up their annual “Our Heroes” tree, and you can help decorate it! Paper stars with pictures of past and present servicemen/women will be hung on the tree to honor those who have served and/or are serving in any branch of the military. Pick up a star in the Media Center along with instructions and then return it to Mrs. Border and she will make sure it gets hung on the tree. After the holidays, the star will be returned to you.
We would like to challenge the students and staff of TVHS to spread kindness to every place in this building. We would like you to do this by taking a strip of paper from outside Mrs. Engle’s room. Write a note telling someone what you value or appreciate about them and give it to that person. If you receive a strip of paper please return it to either Mrs.Engle or Mrs.Garbers as they are going to make a chain of kindness to go around our school.
