Las Vegas Academy of International Studies Performing and Visual Arts

When my new clients with high school-aged children are inquiring about Las Vegas Real Estate, one of their primary concerns is our schools. I love it when people ask me about the Clark County School District as it gives me the opportunity to share with them the many wonderful programs our School District offers in general; but more specifically, I get to tell them about the school I am most fond of: Las Vegas Academy of International Studies Performing and Visual Arts.

Housed in the oldest high school building in the City of Las Vegas, “LVA”, as it is known is an amazing place. It is the best combination of old and new Las Vegas you will find both architecturally as well as geographically. The campus is located in the Las Vegas High School Historical District in downtown Las Vegas. The campus takes up nearly 3 city blocks in an area that is quickly being revitalized. Just one block away from the Academy a new downtown is emerging. Streamline Towers, Soho Lofts and Juhl are all new Las Vegas Condos that have been recently constructed nearby.

The Las Vegas Academy provides students the opportunity to major in the specific fields of International Studies, Theatre, Technical Theatre, Dance, Choir, Orchestra, Band, Broadcast Journalism, Photography, Spanish, Japanese, French, and soon to come Russia and Mandarin Chinese. The academic program at The Las Vegas Academy is one of the best in town with very impressive test scores, graduation rates and a very high rate of students who go on to college.

The Academy is one out of only 17 schools in the country to have received both the New American High School and U.S. Blue Ribbon School awards from the U.S. Department of Education. As you might expect, there are tremendous scholarship opportunities for the hard working students at LVA as well.

The Administration and Faculty at the Academy are among the most caring, most professional and relentlessly dedicated to their students that you will find anywhere. The number of after school hours that these amazing individuals donate is an absolute testimony as to how deeply their passion for their students and their art extends. I can personally speak as to the caliber of these outstanding educators, as my own son has been fortunate to be one of the benefactors of their hard work and sacrifice. He will forever be a better person and better citizen due to their efforts and care. (Now you know why I like the place so much!)

The Clark County School District provides many innovative and challenging programs for our students. The Administration is constantly striving to provide a wide variety of programs for high school students in order to meet the needs of our diverse student population here in Clark County.
