• Western Hills University High School and Dater High School Athletics
    Coming Together as One

    Western Hills and Dater are two separate schools but we operate as one athletic program. Cougars and Mustangs Run the West — We Are The West! #GoWest

    If you want to play athletics, students and parents/guardians must register on final forms.

    Cincinnati Public Schools believes that students' participation in school-sponsored athletic activities improves academic achievement and should be part of a well-rounded education.

    Western Hills and Dater offer a variety of athletic activities for Grades 7-12.
