Where students are part of our city's artistic hub!
What if art teachers valued your creative ideas and gave you the guidance and skills to realize them? What if the work of master artists and cultural treasures from different civilizations were right next door and the door was always open? What if joy and imagination weren’t relegated to the playground, but you and your friends were continually at play in music and on the stage? What if your school looked to you to lead as an actor, singer, and dancer? What if your God-given gifts were ignited, sending you forth with a greater knowledge of who you are meant to be? Schedule a visit to see a culture that honors the creative spark in every student and experience the PS difference.
The journey toward the product is full of challenges.
How we respond to the missteps and errors is part of
embracing the whole of life.
Courtney Daniell-Knapp, Director of Fine Arts
Students have many opportunities to participate in grade level and school wide exhibitions and productions throughout the year for peers, teachers, parents, grandparents and special friends.
The School's fine arts department is made of a dozen experienced full-time faculty members and part-time expert professionals from the community who specialize in art, music, drama and dance.
7th and 8th grade students take a fine arts elective every day. There have been over 90 different classes in performing and studio arts offered to students to ignite creativity and exercise their imaginations.
The School is part of an archipelago of the arts and academia in the heart of Houston's Museum District. Students walk out of the school and into over 20 museums without ever boarding a bus.
