Houston Public Charter School

Rhodes School for The Performing Arts

Rhodes School for the Performing Arts is a Fine Arts Magnet School of Distinction. We expand the educational choice of families with children Pre-K through 8th grade while providing increased opportunities for students. Founded on the principles of Scholarship, Leadership, and Citizenship, we now celebrate our sixteenth year in education.

What we do

Employing qualified teachers and fine art professionals, our instruction team challenges students to think critically, problem solve, collaborate, and to be active participants in the learning process. Our goal is accomplished through incorporating fine arts into our rigorous core academic curriculum.

A Leading Charter School in Houston

We offer Pre-K through 8th Grade. 

RSPA operates according to a state charter with an emphasis on the performing arts and academic excellence.


Students establish a firm foundation in dance through training in multiple styles including Ballet, Modern, Hip Hop, and Jazz.


Our program develops thespians who seek to master the combination of real or imagined events in front of an audience.

Visual Arts

Art expresses itself through acrylic, paint, clay, pencils, and brushes. RSPA students develop as artists while taking their masterpieces from the classroom to gallery


Our percussion classes offer students in-depth study into the various instruments that make up the percussion family.


Vocalists develop as individual singers and mass choir members. Lessons include vocal blending, music reading, and performance.


The piano, when combined with the proper student, creates some of the most beautiful piece in the world. RSPA pianists begin with one note with the intention to grow and join our District Champion team.

We’re moving full STEAM ahead!
