Defiance Senior High School

Ohio's State Tests

Defiance High School will be administering the ‘Ohio’s State Tests’ from April 4 through April 28, 2023. State achievement tests tell us how well our students are growing in the knowledge and skills outlined in Ohio’s Learning Standards.

The Junior/Senior Prom, presented by the Defiance Student Boosters, will take place on May 6, 2023, at the Defiance Fraternal Order of Eagles, from 7:30-11:30 pm.  Tickets are $40 for a couple and $25.00 for a single and will be available for purchase from May 1 - May 6, in the cafe during lunch hours.  For those students that attend Four County Career Center or other, may purchase tickets in Room 209.
