The Journalism Department has been running for over 60 years and has always been determined to provide the most up-to-date news for the students of Coshocton High School as well as the community. It was established as a forum for student expression. This is the first year the Red and Black will be available online, and our 12 staff members are excited to be the firsts to participate in the online newspaper.

Our Community

Coshocton County was formed on January 31, 1810 and according to the 2010 census, the county is home to 36,901 residents.

The name “Coshocton” is derived from the Delaware Indian term meaning “union of waters”. Considering the county is where the Tuscarwarus and the Walhunding Rivers come together to form the Muskingum River, this name is a perfect fit for the county.

Coshocton city is the largest city in the community and is where the Coshocton Elementary School and High School can be found.

This small, safe town is the perfect fit for all the residents to grow old and raise their families and many of them have chosen to do so.

Our School

Although Coshocton High School was founded in 1969, the school currently has approximately 700 students in grades 7-12. The school’s team name is the Redskins and the colors are red and black.

Coshocton High School is a member of the East Central Ohio League. Students compete in various sports; swimming, football, soccer, baseball, basketball, softball, volleyball, golf, track wrestling and tennis. The school has various extracurricular clubs.

Coshocton High School is also a member of the National Honor Society, which was established in 1921. The National Honor Society participates in a variety of community service activities, such as selling food at the school plays, and adopting a senior citizen.

“I like NHS because it recognizes and rewards student leaders for not only their grades but also because they have good character and integrity. The volunteering component promotes a sense of philanthropy that many students do not experience in high school,” said NHS advisor, Mrs. McClurg.
