Athletics

Monticello boys and girls teams participate in the Illini Prairie Conference a high school athletic conference whose member schools have similar enrollments and are all located in the central Illinois region. The statewide class designation is A, 1A, or 2A depending on the sport.

The mascot is the Sages, which is often represented by a wise owl. The Sage mascot is named "Sammy Sage". The basis comes from the Thomas Jefferson nickname "Sage of Monticello", which is also the town's namesake. It is a unique nickname among schools in the United States.

Monticello Marching Sages

Monticello High School has boasted a exemplary music program which is headed by Alison Allender. The Monticello Marching Sages are known through Central Illinois as one of the best high school bands. In the 2017 season, the Marching Sages won the Governor's Trophy at the University of Illinois marching competition which many say is equivalent to winning state.
