Parkview Elementary School, which overlooks the City's Irvine Park, is a four-section, 82,000-square-foot facility. It houses 500 students with the core areas designed for future expansion to 650 students. The Pre-K through 5 facility replaced two aging elementary schools.
One wing houses grades Pre-K through 2 and a second wing houses grades 3 through 5. Each wing has its own computer lab. The IMC has clerestory windows for natural lighting and raised seating in the story telling area. Program spaces such as music, art, and the gymnasium/cafeteria are centrally located for easy access by both grade groupings.
Resource areas are located adjacent to each grade level grouping for teacher preparation and storage of class equipment and materials.
Interior materials include terrazzo tile floors and burnished masonry block walls in the corridors, tile/carpeted floors and painted masonry block in the classrooms, and interior face brick in the IMC. The exterior finish is brick over concrete block.
The Parkview Elementary School features the latest computer and communications system technology.
