High School for the Performing and Visual Arts
The High School for the Performing and Visual Arts (HSPVA for short) is a secondary school located at 4001 Stanford Street in the Montrose district of Houston, Texas. The school is a part of the Houston Independent School District.
The school handles grades nine through twelve and is the second-most widely known performing arts school in the United States, after the High School of Music and Art (informally known as the "Fame School") in New York City, New York.
Plans are currently underway for a new HSPVA building, to be located near the Gregory-Lincoln Education Center. The new building will include a 2000+ seat state-of-the-art theater, Updated facilities and possibly a recording studio. Construction is currently delayed due to the discovery of a possible Civil-War era gravesite.
