High School for Performing & Visual Arts

Advertising Information for besthousingvalue

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. In the United States, high schools generally consist of grades 9, 10, 11, and 12, although the inclusion of grade 9 varies by school district.
HSPVA, High School for the Performing and Visual Arts is a secondary school located at Montrose district of Houston, Texas. The school is a part of the Houston Independent School District. HSPVA was established in 1971 at the San Jacinto High School building. The school serves grades nine through twelve and is perhaps the second most widely known performing arts school in the United States, after the Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of music and art and performing arts in New York City, New York.
The school is divided into five departments include instrumental music, vocal music, dance, theatre and visual arts. The students are required to audition for entry under one, and only one, art area. At the end of every semester students complete a re-audition or portfolio review which determines whether they will continue at HSPVA. The academics are also a high priority at the school, which prizes itself its high standardized test scores and offers a variety of AD, Advanced Placement and Pre AP courses. Students must meet standards in art, academia, and personal conduct, or they risk their place at HSPVA, which is widely viewed as a haven for intelligent, creative and challenging thought.
The school has also had remarkable success in the ARTS competition hosted by the National Foundation for Advancement in the Arts in Miami, Florida. Since the contest's conception, HSPVA has sent one or more students per year to the finalist stage to compete for the Presidential Scholarship and has had numerous students receive honorable mention or merit awards which represent the top 5 percent and 10 percent of the nation's young artists, respectively.
The mission of High School for the Performing and Visual Arts School is to offer an environment in which all students will acquire the necessary skills to become responsible thinkers who appreciate diversity and are productive citizens in their community.
