HSPVA One Step Closer To Downtown Campus
The years of Houston’s High School for the Performing and Visual Arts (HSPVA) in Montrose are slowly winding to a close. As of this week, the HISD magnet school is one step closer to their new and larger high school in downtown.
Sunday marked a groundbreaking ceremony (the actual, real groundbreaking begins Tuesday) with student and alumni performances along with appearances by principal R. Scott Allen, who told the Chronicle “It’s going to be amazing to have the kids down here.”
The new campus will allow for more students, a larger main theater, several small theaters and a new creative writing program.
Earlier this year, Allen and a former student shared some of their memories of the Montrose campus in A Sense of Place: Appreciating HSPVA’s Montrose Campus Before The Big Move Downtown.
