Monticello High School is a coed public secondary institution located in Monticello, Illinois. It is a part of Community Unit School District #25. The school draws from an area of Monticello, Cisco, and White Heath.[8]



A Monticello High School building was built in 1894 and is still in use by the district, but no longer part of the high school.


Monticello boys and girls teams participate in the Okaw Valley 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.[9]

The mascot is the Sages, which is often represented by a wise owl.[10] The basis comes from the Thomas Jefferson nickname "Sage of Monticello", which is also the town's namesake.[11] It is one of the more unique mascot names in the United States.[12]
