High School for the Performing and Visual Arts

Die High School for the Performing and Visual Arts (oder: HSPVA) ist eine High School (Houston Independent School District), die 1971 in Houston/Texas gebaut wurde. Sie wurde dort errichtet, wo vorher das Congregation Beth Israel gestanden hat. 1981 zog die Schule in die 4001 Stanford Street, wo die ehemalige Montrose-Elementary School stand.

In den 1990er Jahren zog die Schule ins Downtown-Viertel der Stadt. 2005 wurde die Schule als National Blue Ribbon School anerkannt. Es existierten Pläne zum Bau eines neuen Gebäudedistriktes, welches ein Theater für 2000 Zuschauer, Fakultäten und ein Aufnahmestudio beinhaltet, jedoch wurde das Projekt im Jahr 2007 abgelehnt.
