Background

The current West Union High School building was completed in August 1997, along with three other public high schools in Adams County, North Adams, Peebles, and Manchester High School. All four schools used the same layout and appear almost identical from the air.

Controversy

The four regular public high schools in Adams County were built at the same time and all four featured a large granite tablet outside the school carved with the Ten Commandments. They were removed after a lengthy four-year legal battle over the placement of the tablets on public property.

Athletics

The school's mascot is the Dragon. In 2010, West Union began experimenting with football. Football is only a community sponsored sport, it is not sponsored by the school district. See also Ohio High School Athletic Association and Ohio High School Athletic Conferences
