Piqua High School Students & Families,
State Tests are starting in a few weeks. How do you know which State Tests you are taking? You only test in the subjects listed below that you are currently enrolled in. This means if the class is on your schedule you are taking that State Test.
Please bring your school-assigned Chromebook with you on each test day.
Testing dates are as follows:
Tuesday March 26: English 10 Part I
Wednesday March 27: English 10 Part II
Tuesday April 16: Biology Part I
Wednesday April 17: Biology Part II
Tuesday April 23: U.S. Studies Part I & Government Part I*
Wednesday April 24: U.S. Studies Part II & Government Part II*
*UVCC Students taking government will take the Government Test at UVCC
Tuesday April 30: Algebra Part I & Geometry Part I
Wednesday May 1: Algebra Part II & Geometry Part II
School staff will continue to remind students about their test date(s). It is possible that some students will take up to 4 exams, and some students may not take any.
On testing days, students who are not testing will have a 2-hour delay. Students that are testing will need to be at school at the normal start time on test day(s). Piqua City Schools bus routes will be on normal route time each day. Therefore, non-testing students will need to arrange transportation if they choose not to ride the bus to school. Non-test-taking students who ride the bus to school on test days will be supervised by school staff in the cafeteria until the regular school day begins.
Please call the high school office with any questions.

Huge congratulations to the Company on an EPIC win at Solon over the weekend! During prelims the group was awarded best instrumental feature for the Audio Hype number 7 Nation Army. Senior Sabastian Karabinis was named the group's outstanding performer and then ended up being named best overall male performer for the whole contest! In the finals the group put on their best show of the season and was awarded best show concept, best instrumental ensemble, and OVERALL GRAND CHAMPION. What a way to end the season! Great job to the students and staff involved in this awesome organization!

Speaking of cheer: Big weekend for cheerleading at state- they finished 4th in the game day performance category, and finished in the top 10 in their traditional cheer competition. The girls had an outstanding season finishing the highest any team has ever placed at the state cheerleading competition at PHS. Nicole Whiteman our head coach was voted state coach of the year. Congratulations again ladies for a memorable season.
Special congratulations to senior wrestler Max Kaye for finishing fifth at this past weekend at the district tournament. His performance locked in a spot as an alternate next weekend for state at the Ohio State University. Congratulations Max.
