Vermilion High School is a public high school in Vermilion, Ohio. It is the only high school in the Vermilion Local School District.

The school colors are purple and gold. The sports teams are nicknamed the Sailors. The rivalry game between the Sailors and their arch rivals, the Firelands Falcons, is by far the most important game of the year for both teams. With the two High Schools being only 10 miles apart, the rivalry has a Carolina-Duke feel to it. Many of the students at each high school know students from the other high school, and when these two schools face off, especially in Football and Basketball, both communities show an immense amount of passion and excitement for the game.

Notable alumni[edit]

  • Allie LaForce, 2005 Miss Teen USA. Current sports reporter for CBS.
  • Andy Oliver, Professional Pitcher in the Pittsburgh Pirates organization.
