The Taylorville Sr. High School's students were very involved in their high school. There were many clubs and activities that the students put on themselves to increase school spirit. Recently, the high school put in a STEM lab that helped the science and math students learn with better tools. The school also put in a new track and turf football field. I would like to see better computer labs in the school to help the students write their English papers. I would also like to see the school pay more attention to the art and music programs instead of the athletics.

There is a lot of stuff that goes unnoticed at Taylorville including excessive bullying and other issues including rape. There aren't a lot of resources for topics that make the average person uncomfortable. There is absolutely no sex ed as of now, but they are introducing an abstinence course for freshmen, which is not going to help anything because teenagers will be teenagers. Teachers are friendly, but accelerated classes are super easy, and nothing is challenging.
The extracurricular opportunities are vast. The school offers music, art, many sports for both genders, student council, key club, and our most fun option - Purple Reign (student spirit club). Purple Reign has approximately 450 members and their primary focus is to cheer on the athletic teams. They come to the games sporting their uniquely designed tshirts or sometimes in whatever themed attire they have decided on for that specific night. They perform chants in unison and become very loud! This gets the players fired up and the games are full of energy! The administration does support and encourage these clubs and organizations and is usually at most of the events.
