Phil Campbell Elementary School is located in a small town of about 1,000 residents located in the eastern part of Franklin County in the northwestern corner of Alabama. Russellville, the county seat and largest town in the county, is located approximately twelve miles from Phil Campbell. Highways 5 & 13 run through Phil Campbell, which brings a lot of through traffic into the town each day.

Phil Campbell's boundary touches the Marion County line, making it convenient for children from that area to attend school at Phil Campbell. Many Phil Campbell residents work in Marion County, primarily in the manufacturing industry. Since Phil Campbell is primarily a rural area, there are several family-owned poultry production farms in the community which provide employment and income for local families.

Our community consists of one grocery store, one dollar store, a medical office, a bank, two restaurants, one pharmacy, two service stations, and several small businesses. No major industries or large businesses are located in the area forcing most residents to travel out of the area for employment and shopping. The town has a police department, a fire department and provides ambulance and emergency services. Town government is handled by a mayor and a five member town council. Our community is a small town where the residents know everyone. The community comes together for such activities as seasonal celebrations and the annual Phil Campbell Day celebration, which draws people with the town's name from all over the world.
