Defiance Senior High School
Ohio's State Tests
Starting April 4, 2016, Defiance High School will be administering Ohio's State Tests in English 9, English 10, Algebra, Geometry, Biology, U.S. History, and American Government.  
State achievement tests tell us how well our students are growing in the knowledge and skills outlined in Ohio’s Learning Standards. These tests help guide and strengthen future teaching so we can be sure that we are preparing our students for long-term success in school, college, careers and life. Test results also allow citizens to know how their local schools are performing compared to others around the state.

2016 Junior/Senior Prom
The 2016 Junior/Senior Prom will be held on April 30th at Defiance Eagles from 8:00 pm until midnight.  This year’s theme is “The Great Gatsby”.  Ticket prices are $65.00 per couple and $40.00 for a single and will be sold in the cafeteria during all lunch periods from April 18th-22nd.  The price includes: admission to the dance, a DVD souvenir, unlimited soft drinks & water, a dessert bar catered by “A Little Slice of Heaven”, and admittance to this year’s After Prom, sponsored by the Junior Class Parents which will be held this year at Defiance High School.  ABSOLUTELY NO TICKETS WILL BE SOLD AT THE DOOR!  If you are bringing a guest who is not a Defiance High School student you must complete a pre-registration form, which is in the main office at Defiance.  Crowning of the King and Queen, as well as the court dance, will begin at 9:30.  Following school policy, students must be admitted by 9:00 pm and are not allowed to re-enter once they leave.  (No refunds will be given.)  Please direct any questions or concerns to Mrs. Haviland at DHS (419-784-2777) or

Additionally, nominations for the Prom Court will be conducted on April 6th in all English classes, and voting will take place on April 11th in the same classes.
This year, the After Prom parents are offering a catered (by Chef Aaron Weible/Sweetwater Chophouse) meal for purchase.  This will be an elegant alternative offering to going out of town, worrying about reservations, or the crowds that you will frequently encounter on Saturday night at many restaurants.  The venue will be Defiance Elementary School (off Carter Road) and will be limited to Defiance High School students and their guests.  This is a hassle-free alternative to going out of town or to a local restaurant.  Tickets will be available for purchase at the same time you purchase your Prom tickets.  Cost for the meal is $15.00 for a single and $30.00 for a couple.  You may purchase your meal tickets at the same time as the dance tickets.
