Pickens School also has a gymnasium, cafeteria, library, and computer lab. Students at all levels use the gym, cafeteria, and library. Pickens School has achieved a 1:1 ratio of students and computers with all students having access to laptops. Students in Grades 8-12 have their laptops 24 hours a day.
