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 is currently under construction and is was significantly completed at the beginning of the 2008-2009 school year.[dated info] This new addition will include a new library media center, cafeteria and kitchen, and many classrooms; the old library and cafeteria were converted to classrooms as well.
