HSPVA 2020 Senior Dance Recital - Piece created by Senior Megan Hasou

Welcome to Kinder HSPVA

  • Dr. Allen Robert S. AllenPrincipal

    Phone: (713) 942-1960 


    As principal, it is my great pleasure to welcome you to our website for Kinder High School for the Performing and Visual Arts (HSPVA).


    We are in our 49th 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. This school year brings even more excitement than usual as we enter our first full year in our state of the art five-story building in downtown Houston, only blocks from the prestigious Theatre District! The design and construction journeys were amazing as we worked with architects from Gensler and our contractors from McCarthy Building Companies.  Watching our student settle in and raise the level of art and performance in the new spaces was inspiring this spring.  I know that will continue this school year!
