High school is a name used in some parts of the world, and particularly in North America, to describe the last segment of compulsory secondary education. It is preceded by primary education. High school is also the name used to describe the institution in which the final stage of compulsory education takes place.
David H. Hickman Senior High School is a public high school located in Columbia, Missouri. Hickman, which serves grades 10 through 12, is a part of the Columbia public schools. Students in grade 9 are allowed to take certain advanced courses that are not available at the local junior high schools. The principal of the school is Mike Jeffers.
The Kewpie is the mascot of Hickman High School in Columbia, Missouri. It is the only known school in the world with a Kewpie as its mascot. The school is renowned for its excellent academic programs. Hickman has had more presidential scholars named than any other public high school in Missouri. Its literary journal, the Hickman review, has received several prestigious national awards. The school retains a traditional 7-period schedule. A variety of classes are offered, from a wide variety of honors and AP Advanced Placement courses, to various courses for all aspects of the arts, as well as courses specializing in vocational education.
The Hickman Kewpie football team won the class 6 title in the fall of 2004. Wrestler Tony Pescaglia received a state title in 2004. The baseball team won the class 4 state title in the spring of 2005. Wrestling brothers K.C. and Tony Pescaglia both won state championships in 2005. With the exception of the Spanish Influenza epidemic of 1918, it appears football has been played every year at Columbia Hickman High School since that initial 1894 year.

Basketball was another sport played early on, but research into the starting season of the team is still being done. It was definitely a team fielded by the school by the time of the first Cresset in 1912. Baseball seems to have been strong at Columbia High School early on but looks to have faded in the late 1920s or early 1930s due to the great depression. The mission of Hickman High School is to provide their students equal opportunities to grow along with all round development. It helps them to acquire knowledge in a unique way resulting in the development of values.
