Group & Individual Speech

Tipton has a strong history of excellence in speech, with a team comprised of approximately 40 students in total.

The word speech can be misleading as many of the events do not involve giving speeches at all. The speech team is a competition theatre company that performs on a group and individual level from January to March. Group speech events include Choral Reading, Readers' Theatre, Radio Broadcast, One Act, Ensemble, Group Mime, Musical Theatre, Group Improvisation, and TV News. Individual events include Prose, Poetry, Radio News, Solo Mime, Individual Improvisation, Acting, Public Address, Spontaneous Speaking, Original Oratory, Expository Speaking, Review, Storytelling, and Literary Program.

First Tech Challenge

FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) is an international STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) focused robotics program.

The team meets all year long, with competitions held in late Fall and Winter. Students build and program a Tetrix robot to complete in the annual game. Teams also go through an interview with a panel of judges at each competition with the goal of being nominated for one of the awards. This is Tipton's 3rd year having a team.

National Honor Society

National Honor Society has started the year with a variety of projects to help our community.

We have volunteered with the Historical Society Farm to help the local food bank. We are going to be doing a highway clean up to help beautify Tipton. We are also helping with homecoming activities where we will help collect money for the Ronald McDonald House and Juvenile Diabetes Research Fund.
