Talawanda High School (THS) is a public high school in Oxford, Ohio, United States. It is the only high school in the Talawanda School District and serves students in grades 9–12. It was created in 1956 with the consolidation of three Butler County high schools: Hanover High School in Milford Township, and Stewart and McGuffey High Schools in Oxford Township. The first graduating class was in 1957. Athletic teams are known as the Braves and the school colors are red, white, and navy blue.
The school is located in the southern part of Oxford along University Park Boulevard on a campus that includes a multi-purpose stadium with an all-weather track and other outdoor athletic fields. The school opened in June 2012 following a levy approval in 2008. The previous home of THS on Chestnut Street was sold to Miami University for just over $1 million and was torn down in September 2014 to make way for a parking structure. The field house and outdoor athletic facilities on the site remain.
