Hi-Pointe is a neighborhood of St. Louis, Missouri, within a section known as Dogtown. It is bounded by Clayton Avenue and Oakland Avenue on the north, City Limits on the west, Dale Avenue on the south, and Louisville Avenue on the east. It is bordered by the Skinker-DeBaliviere neighborhood and Forest Park on the north, the Clayton-Tamm neighborhood on the east, the Franz Park neighborhood on the south and the city of Richmond Heights, part of St. Louis County on the west.

The Hi-Pointe area takes its name from being one of the highest points in the City of St. Louis. Within the area, two local businesses and one local street use this connotation as part of their respective names: they are the Hi-Pointe Theatre, an independent movie house; the Hi-Pointe Cafe, and Hi-Pointe Place. There are between 750 and 800 separate homes, apartment buildings, condominium buildings and businesses in this area. There is a fire house, a school, a bank and many other business establishments. The area is mostly residential in nature.

Neighborhood businesses include a site of the locally owned Schnucks supermarket chain and a St. Louis Bread Company bakery cafe. Around the corner from the Hi-Pointe theater stands a now-empty building that used to house a Del Taco and before that a Naugles, but the restaurant is now out of business.
