The YRHS team mascot is "Colonel Raider."

The YRHS Marching 100 marching band was the only Canadian representative in the 1998 Tournament of Roses parade in Pasadena, CA.

The YRHS Jazz 1 band represented the country at the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland on July 7, 2006. Just days previous to that, the band took third place in the Vienna International Youth Music Festival.

The Yorkton Regional High School has been number 1 in Canada in the QSP Magazine Campaign for 17 years in a row, each year bringing in over $100,000, going directly towards extra-curricular activities and events at the school.

In 1985, Yorkton Regional High School hosted the very first Canadian Student Leadership Conference (CLSC). This event has taken place every year since and returned to Yorkton in 1995.
