Our Vision:

Taylorville Junior High School, in collaboration with parents and community, will provide a safe learning environment and inspire our students to become career-ready independent thinkers and problem solvers utilizing community resources and technology.

Message from the Principal
     Welcome to the Taylorville Junior High School Tornado family. Our faculty and staff hope you will enjoy your educational and extracurricular experiences while you are a student here. We recognize that these junior high years are so important to all phases of development and we care about you as a person. Please take a little time to review this website so that you become familiar with online information and resources at TJHS. 
     As a junior high school student, you will continue to become more independent and responsible. We ask that you make an effort to do your best every day, be kind, and learn to work together with your teachers and fellow students. When you can work well with others, you will go far in life!
     Junior high school also marks the beginning of many extracurricular opportunities and your sponsors/coaches hope that you get involved. You are encouraged to be a part of something bigger than yourself, both in the classroom and outside of the classroom. One of the greatest experiences you can have is to be a great teammate and/or classmate.
     Our TJHS commitment to you is that we will support your efforts as you strive to grow emotionally, academically, and socially. We hope that you will embrace the challenge and be open to growth in all areas.

Eric R. Bruder, Principal
