Beyonce Knowles is 1 of the world’s most famous singers and actresses. She was the lead singer for the pop band Destiny’s Child and went on to a solo career as a singer and and actress, co starring in 2002 in “Austin Powers: Goldmember” together with mega star Mike Meyers and the following year opposite “Kevin Gooding Jr.” in The Fighting Temptations. But what schools did Beyonce attend to make her the star that she is today? I set out to find out and this is what I learned.
Beyonce Knowles began her schooling in Texas at St. Mary’s Elementary School, a local religious school that her parents wanted her to attend. It was at St. Mary’s that her musical talent was very first discovered. Beyonce decided to take some dance classes where she learned both classic ballet and jazz. Following a recital, her instructor heard her humming and when she was actually able to hit the high note realized that he had a music genius in the producing on his hands. She enrolled in the school talent show and despite an early case of stage fright, got out there and sang, obtaining rave reviews at the age of 7.
In 1990, Beyonce switched schools and enrolled in Parker Elementary School, a unique music magnet school for those who are gifted in the musical arts. She sang there with the school choir until graduation, when she attended the High School for the Performing and Visual Arts in Houston.
Beyonce later switched schools but once more, this time attending Alief Elsik High School, one the largest in the state.
Amazingly, in spite of being a super-star, when one asks the question what schools did Beyonce attend, for college, you will not hear that she went to Juliard or some other school of the performing arts. Instead, you will discover that Beyonce in no way made it to college. By the time of her high school graduation, Beyonce was already well on her way to becoming a super star. At that time, Destiny’s Child had already recorded one album and their second, breakout album, the 1 that blew the charts away and turned her into a super star was just a couple of years down the line.
I can’t imagine even so that Beyonce would not encourage youngsters to stay in school and even go to college. As a role model to girls everywhere, when men and women ask the question, what schools did Beyonce attend, I’m certain she can only give her own counsel, that she attended many schools, but that does not mean that she wouldn’t suggest going for a college education as well.
