Parkview High School is a public high school located in Springfield, Missouri. Parkview was the second high school built in Springfield after Central High School. Parkview graduated its first class in 1957. The next year a new wing was constructed due to the large number students enrolling. In 1992 an auditorium was added to Parkview for its music and drama productions. In 2001 a new music room was finished and renovations to other classrooms were completed. The most recent changes to Parkview have been the demolition of the old north wing and adding a new wing to replace it. It was completed and was occupied in January 2006. It was formally dedicated on September 21, 2006. Phase two of the addition was completed at the beginning of the 2008-2009 school year. The second addition included a new library media center, cafeteria and kitchen, and many classrooms; the old library and cafeteria were converted to classrooms as well. Over 90% of the building is new or renovated construction since the completion of the two-phase, 20 million dollar project in November 2008. A formal dedication ceremony for Phase II was held on September 18, 2008.
The school's news show is called Vike Vision. The school's mascot is a Viking. Parkview has an ID policy that requires students to wear an ID badge.
