The Taylorville Commnity School District lies in a fairly rural part of Central Illinois and struggles with its budget, resulting in limited extracurricular and academic programs. The local area is predominately white, so diversity is low as a consequence. The district is, however, remarkably safe and has an excellent group of teachers.
Taylorville is an okay school. Most of the teachers are very friendly and willing to prepare students for the future. The administration could be a lot for some of the counselor have told students they cannot achieve their dreams based on disabilities such as autism. The food is terrible at the school and is know to have rotten fruit and pink meat. Clubs are pretty great from being a marching band member and a musical crew member. Overall Taylorville is not perfect but is not bad compared to surrounding schools.
