Indian Creek High School is a public high school in Wintersville, Ohio. In the late 1960s, the school formerly known as Wintersville High School consolidated with Wayne High School Bloomingdale, Ohio. The former Wayne Wolves remained but as an elementary school while the high school combined with the Jr. High (Buchanan Braves) and Sr. High school (Wintersville Warriors). In 1993, the Indian Creek Local School District consolidated with Mingo Junction, which resulted in the closing of Mingo Sr. High School. The Mingo students were transferred into Wintersville Sr High School, creating Indian Creek High School. The old Mingo high school was made into Indian Creek Junior High, before moving into the new middle school in January 2013. Mingo's nickname was changed from the Indians and the combined schools became the Indian Creek Redskins. The current school colors are red and gold.
Although both Wintersville and Mingo's High school voted for the colors to be black and blue, the executive decision was made by the school board to go with Gold and Red against the populus of the two communities.
Indian Creek High School employs over 150 teachers employed by the Indian Creek School District. ICHS employs two teachers with doctoral degrees, both of which are in the Ohio High School Teacher Hall of Fame (OHSTHF). Indian Creek High School dates back to the time when the [City of Mingo Junction] was forced to consolidate their high school by the State of Ohio School Board (for tax monies from the [Wheeling Pittsburgh Steel Corp.] with Wintersville High School.
The Indian Creek Redskins compete in the Buckeye 8 of the OHSAA. Indian Creek has many athletics in which students may participate including band, cheerleading, football, soccer, volleyball, cross county, golf, basketball, wrestling, baseball, softball, tennis and track.
