Park View High School is a public secondary school in Sterling, an unincorporated area in Loudoun County, Virginia, United States. The school is part of Loudoun County Public Schools and is located at 400 West Laurel Avenue in the Sterling Park community.
Park View High School opened in 1976 and served the entire Sterling Park and Sugarland areas. When Richard Bonieskie opened Park View, it offered state of the art facilities, including a large auditorium and a two-level library, which gave the school the nickname "University of Park View" during the years following its opening.
As eastern Loudoun County began to experience high growth in the 1980s and 1990s, a considerable portion of its student body was fed into Potomac Falls High School, which opened in 1997. In 2003, more of Park View's student body were fed not only into Potomac Falls, but also into Dominion High School which opened that year.
Park View was extensively renovated between 2002 and 2004. The renovations included moving the library to the first floor, expanding it, adding classrooms on the second floor, reconstructing the main offices and guidance offices, the Senior courtyard, and constructing a foyer on the front of the building. In 2005, the auditorium was also renovated and features new seats, a new curtain, and new theatre systems.
