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 our 51st 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 students return face-to-face to continue the work of raising the level of art and performance in our beautiful building.

On EPI's Sea Turtle Ecology Program, you'll share ideas and experiences with local Costa Rican students and work side by side with researchers endeavoring to protect the leatherback sea turtle.
