Welcome to Parkview Arts/Science Magnet High School Academies, where your student will receive the most diverse and unique educational experience in Central Arkansas. Our students learn through immersion in Fine Arts performance, promotion and production classes, as well as through our outstanding General, Medical, and Applied Sciences Academies.
Parkview is a unique and exciting school, where instructors work to find innovative ways to deliver interesting and challenging educational experiences. As Parkview evolves as a member of the “Academies of Central Arkansas,” parents can be assured that the quest for excellence that has made Parkview famous will not be abandoned. Our venture into the Ford NGL Academies is yet another example of how we will continue to improve and grow. This partnership will create avenues for us to provide the best in an arts and science education while exposing students to real life, hands-on experiences that will help deepen their love and understanding of the arts and the sciences.
The Academy of Performing Arts and Production will continue to offer the traditional Liberal Arts experiences that Parkview students have historically enjoyed, but now it will be enhanced with classes that teach students the production side of performances—giving students a rare opportunity to see both sides of the stage, while creating memorable and quality community performances.
The Academy of the Visual Arts and Marketing is a new and exciting extension of the school’s offerings. Here, students will have an opportunity to experience real life media promotion and publishing, broadcast classes, publication writing, graphic arts, visual promotions, and commercial photography, working, supporting, and underpinning the Fine Arts and Science academies.
Our Science Academy offers students multifaceted choices for a stellar Science education for every student. Students can delve deeply into Advanced Placement courses that will take them beyond the required core curriculum. Science students can explore the Applied Science coursework through an extension into the EXCEL program, and they can enjoy classes in the Medical Sciences fields. Additionally, they can pursue internships in areas where employment will be available immediately after graduation, including Pharmacy Technician and Certified Nurse Assistant. The school will continue to offer Military Sciences through the Navy JROTC program, which combines with our Science course offerings and affords students a pathway to possible ROTC scholarships and military careers.
With all that is offered, Parkview students will be prepared for life after high school—whether they go to college, to work, or choose to serve their country. Our name may be changing, but our quest for excellence remains the same. We know you don’t have an ordinary student; why not choose an extraordinary high school?
