Parkview Arts/Science Magnet High School is a school like no other you have experienced. We are "The Best by Choice," and the waiting list for our school is incredible. And why wouldn't it be? This is not your average school. Throw out the standard picture you have in your mind of a school, of a teacher, of an administrator. Our teachers are excited about teaching and challenging their students. Our student body is diverse, artistic, creative, analytical, and involved. Our administrators are helpful to parents and supportive of teachers.

A nationally renowned Fine Arts Program
Things are always hopping at Parkview - and we take pride in the differences that set us apart - and ahead - of the rest of the high schools in the state. Our drama department, which includes one of the few mime classes in the South, offers several productions in the community. Among the drama department's annual theater billings are Murder Mystery Dinner Theater, Tales from the Crypt in Mount Holly Cemetery, Medieval Feast at the Pulaski County Courthouse, and Arkansas Adventures at various schools. The Spring Musical, as always, will be a well received, well attended, and will be an outstanding production. Parkview’s annual dance show never fails to captivate audiences when it showcases professionally choreographed and costumed dancers who perform and interpret their art so well that it literally moves its audience to tears. In addition, we have an award-winning visual arts program, an orchestra, a piano lab, marching band, jazz band, a large choral department, and two dance studios in the school. However, creative and artistic endeavors are not the only thing that makes Parkview so remarkable.
An extraordinary science program

An extraordinary science program
Parkview has a serious science magnet program that offers courses in both Pre-AP and AP chemistry, biology, environmental science, physics and engineering for our science magnet students. Other courses include organic chemistry, qualitative analysis, geology and space, microbiology, anatomy and physiology, technical writing, and a full pre-engineering program. Parkview's curriculum was developed in conjunction with the University of Arkansas and the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences - and provides courses of interest to students who want to go into medical professions. With the addition of the internationally known Project Lead the Way (PTLW) Engineering Program, science students are career and college ready for engineering fields. Science students spend their four years at Parkview creating a major research project that is presented and defended before members of the scientific community during their senior year. Every year, some of those seniors go on to win regional and state science awards, and arrive at college well prepared for their future.
