What is HP Arts?
The mission of HP Arts is to fund and encourage arts enrichment and arts education in all eight schools in the Highland Park Independent School District. Like many other school districts across Texas, HPISD is experiencing increasing financial pressure and faces tough choices in funding curriculum and activities.
In the years since it was founded in 1987, HP Arts has distributed over 1.3 million dollars in funds contributed by district families, community members, and cornerstone benefactor La Fiesta de las Seis Banderas.
HP Arts - Arts Education Champion for Over 30 Years
HP Arts is celebrating its 33rd year of enriching the educational experience of all HPISD students through arts programming. This past year, through the generous support of parents, community members, and a grant from La Fiesta de las Seis Banderas, HP Arts funded more than $50,000 in teacher requests from all campuses for arts programming, technology, equipment, and instruments.
Founded in 1987, HP Arts is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting arts education in HPISD. Since its inception, HP Arts has distributed over one million dollars in funds contributed by District families and cornerstone benefactor La Fiesta de las Seis Banderas. HP Arts was founded on the principle — supported by numerous studies — that arts education plays a vital role in the overall development and academic success of our students.
