Can someone let me know if it is okay to place tile over sheetrock?

I want to put tile above my tub unit, to avoid water splashing high up on the walls. This would only go above the shower walls, so it will not get too wet. I do not know if I have blueboard there or simple sheetrock.

Hi Mike,

Way up that high it'll be okay. Use modified thin set as your adhesive, and seal the tile and grout after everything is dry.
