Senior School Computer Services

Public computer access is available in all of the five Senior School computer labs and the Senior School library. The library also has laptops available for loan. These areas provide ample access to computers for academic purposes. 

The school computers come with a range of standard programs, including the Microsoft Office Suite (Word, Excel, etc.) and Adobe CS5 (Photoshop, InDesign, etc.). The school is a PC environment, with computers being replaced on a four-year cycle. For laptop users, the SMUS wireless network is available in all buildings. 

Senior School computers have a looser content filter than Middle and Junior School labs. Senior School students can access social networking sites freely but content is still screened for appropriateness.

While computers are very useful, some students struggle to use computers productively: social networking, computer games, and movies can distract students from their studies. We always encourage our students to use computers wisely.
