Dr. Priscilla Rivas, Principal
As principal, it is my great honor and pleasure to welcome you to our website for Kinder High School for the Performing and Visual Arts (HSPVA).
We are thrilled to be celebrating of 50th year of excellence in the arts and academics at HSPVA! We continue to celebrate what makes us one of the nation's most prestigious high schools: our proud heritage, dedicated staff, successful alumni, supportive parents, and, most importantly, our gifted and talented students. We are thrilled with our new state of the art five-story building in downtown Houston, only blocks from the prestigious Theatre District! The design and construction journeys from 2016-2019 were amazing as we worked with architects from Gensler and our contractors from McCarthy Building Companies. I am most excited about watching our student return face-to-face to continue the work of raising the level of art and performance in our beautiful building.
HGOco welcomes 9 students to the BFHSVS for the 2021–22 school year. These high school students exhibit extraordinary talent and potential and are interested in pursuing vocal performance at the collegiate level.
