Performance & Visual Arts High School Reviews

Great overall experience. Academics are phenomenal and do prepare you for the rigorous college classes. It is a great school for students willing to be constantly active throughout the campus in clubs, performances, and general school life. The artistic side of the school is slightly below the academic level because of the constant need to balance everything. However, that is not to say it is not worthy of the arts name because it is definitely above average than most schools. I highly recommend this school to any student who wants a totally different high school experience that is remembered for life.
Review Performance & Visual Arts High School
My high school experience was absolutely amazing. It sounds cliche, but all four years meant so much to me. So many memories were created and friendships. Connections were made and eyes were opened. When I say eyes were opened, I am specifically talking about me. It opened my eyes to the world of opera. I study vocal at my school and it is the best. I have learned and have grown a burning passion for opera. This high school had a heavy influence on it, so much that it gave me an opportunity to sing in an opera at the Houston Grand Opera; an experience i will never forget. That would have never happened if my high school did not have the connections it did. I am thankful and grateful for attending this school. I am thankful for the balance of arts and academics it allowed me to learn. I am thankful for HSPVA.
This school prepares me for college and the real world. It's helped me grow as a person, a designer, intellectually, and artistically. The teachers are phenomenal and provide endless support. Through the opportunities made available to me here, I've been able to discover what kind of art I want to pursue, how I can make it happen, and I've grown tremendously in my artistic area. I could not have asked for a better or more beneficial high school experience.
