Defiance City Schools began a new era in December 2017 with the construction of a modern, new middle/high school building. Designed for today’s project-based learning, the school serves more than 1,300 students in grades 6-12.

ľƵ Libbe Inc. of the ľƵ was construction manager and GEM Inc. performed steel erection and teledata work. The two-story, 231,000-square-foot building includes modern security features and meets LEED Silver standards.

The inviting campus makes the most of natural light and includes:

  • A “teaching stair”
  • A modern media center
  • State-of-the-art science rooms
  • A CAD lab
  • An engineering tech lab
  • Updated band and choir facilities with technologically upgraded practice rooms and additional ensemble spaces
  • A nearly 20,000-square-foot arena-style gymnasium that seats up to 2,500



The Defiance Grades 6-12 School is a state-of-the-art educational setting that will give our young people everything they need to become college- and career-ready in a highly competitive world.
