About Us

Houston is also Home of the Houston Public School District.

Located in the heart of the Ozarks in south central Missouri, the City of Houston offers warm hospitality, beautiful natural scenery, and a proud history that has laid a foundation for an exciting future.

Our success is credited to great schools, parks, and neighborhoods, along with low crime, new infrastructure, and a wide variety of housing choices.

From youth sports leagues to special activities for senior citizens, Houston offers enjoyment for all ages. Multiple Parks, a pool, along with baseball, softball, football, and soccer fields give young and old alike the opportunity to stay active. Also, Houston’s low crime rate makes the community a safe place to call home.

Houston is also home of the Houston public school district. A small school with lower class sizes does not stop our Tigers from having access to sports and classes usually offered in larger districts. Football, Basketball, Baseball, and Softball top the list when it comes to Tiger Sports. The Houston School district also participates with Drury University in providing Dual Credit classes to prepare your student for life after High School. Making sure our kids are ready for what they will face when they leave High School is a very important piece of the Houston School District.

Great Schools, parks, affordable housing, available sites, and a ready workforce make Houston a community focused on providing a high quality of life.
