Alene Coggin is the executive director of HSPVA Friends and Dr. Scott Allen is the principal of the High School for the Performing and Visual Arts. The school is famous for offering a world class arts education as part of the public school system. Students must audition to attend and their curriculum is demanding since the art courses are essentially tacked onto a standard HISD education.
With the help of the school bonds and The Kinder Foundation, HSPVA will be opening its superb building next year. It will house a large theatre and 3 performance spaces, a recording studio and dance, music and writing studios. It's a Houston achievement like no other.
