About Our School

  • Houston Elementary was originally built in 1982 and received renovations and additions in 2002. The school received additional updates through a bond package in 2021.  The school is named after Sam Houston, who defeated General Antonio Lopez de Santa Ana to secure Texas’ independence and eventually was elected as the first President of the Republic of Texas.

    Much like its namesake, Houston Elementary has earned a strong reputation among the Denton community for its development of educated students and engaged citizens. 

    The school’s climate is known for being caring and friendly, while still challenging students to reach their potential in the classroom. That attitude is contagious outside the classroom as well, with strong family and local business involvement.

    Students at Houston have a number of opportunities to showcase their academic, athletic, and social talents at school. There is an art club, student leadership team, choir, and orchestra.
