English High School is an historic high school building at 20 Irving Street in Worcester, Massachusetts. The three story brick building was designed by the local firm of Barker & Nourse, and built in 1891. The Romanesque Revival building has rectangular massing, with entrances on Chatham and Irving Streets and a five story, hip roofed chateau-style tower on the corner. Gable sections have decorative brickwork, and the third story windows have arched heads, a feature continued in other parts of the building's exterior and interior. The building served as a high school building until 1966, and as school offices thereafter.

The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.
