Our online resources can be accessed from school computers as well as students' home computers. These resources are The Tennessee Electronic Library and The Encyclopedia Britannica Online (use the username "phslibrary" and the password "panthers").
A bookstore is available all day for school supplies such as paper, pencils, pens, posterboard, folders, and more.
Students have access to 29 computers in the computer lab and 6 computers in the library. All computers have Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and access to the Internet.
