    PVA update Wednesday, May 15, 2020


    Good Afternoon!


    We made it to another Friday!  As I type this, it is dark outside my window and the thunder is growing louder.  Seems like it will be a wet and stormy weekend.  In my mind I dream of the rainstorms washing away the virus and the sun bringing things back to the normal I think most long for these days.  Unfortunately, that won’t happen.  So I will remain thankful for the coming  rains that will water the new plants in the flowerbeds in our yard!


    I will be sending detailed information about the “events” of May 22nd (Seniors), May 28th/29th (Underclassmen), and the June 5th Class of 2020 celebration.  We are still finalizing things to make each the very best possible for our students.  Thank you for your patience!..READ MORE.

    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!
