Hicksville High School
#1 Best Public High Schools in Defiance County
- Hicksville Exempted Village School District, OH
- Rating 4.13 out of 5 68 reviews
Senior: Hicksville High School is a small, rural school where all the teachers, administrators, and support staff know you and encourage your success. My experience has been very positive in that I feel all of the classes I have taken are preparing me for success in college and beyond. Hicksville does not offer a ton of AP or college-credit classes but what they do offer are quality classes with outstanding teaching. Hicksville has high expectations of their students in the classroom, on the playing field, and beyond its doors.

Tinora High School
#2 Best Public High Schools in Defiance County
- Northeastern Local School District (Defiance), OH
- Rating 3.85 out of 5 48 reviews
Senior: Tinora High School is a small, yet powerful high school. I liked the small class sizes; they allowed more one-on-one teacher to student learning, which increased my comprehension of subjects. My teachers were always willing to offer help if a student was not fully understanding the topic. They would even give up their own time - staying after school, arriving to school early, taking time out of their free period - to make sure that their students were thriving. The entire high school has a positive atmosphere. There are many sports and various clubs that all students are encouraged to participate in. The staff as well as the students try their best to make sure that everyone is included and well-treated.

Fairview High School
#3 Best Public High Schools in Defiance County
- Central Local School District, OH
- Rating 3.5 out of 5 46 reviews
Senior: Fairview High School has a very supportive community. During sporting events, musicals, band/ choir concerts, etc the community always comes together to support the students. The community will also come together in times of tragedy. Such as a house fire, tornado damage, flood damage, etc. A family friend had a house fire in the school district and thousands of dollars were raised for them. They had a new house up within a year, and their expenses were all paid for. The teachers at Fairview are always there for the students as well. They are willing to work around their schedules to help students with issues in and out of the classroom. Students are there for each other, too. Personally, I've made friendships I know will last a lifetime. At Fairview, it's easy to make friends because everyone is so welcoming. My friends are some of the most caring, sweet, and honest people I have ever met. They push me to become a better athlete and student. Fairview was a great home for four years.

Ayersville High School
#5 Best Public High Schools in Defiance County
- Ayersville Local School District, OH
- Rating 3.74 out of 5 38 reviews
Senior: I really like that all of the teachers are very friendly and eager to help the students when they need it. It is a smaller school, so everybody knows everybody else, and that is both good and bad. There are a lot of opportunities to involve yourself, intellectually or physically. There are so many clubs and sports here that anyone can find something they enjoy, and there are often opportunities to start you own club. The property itself is pretty nice, we have our own pool! The whole building is K-12, and there is a new school building being built right next to it.
