The High Tops School, also known as Schoolhouse No. 9, is a historic school building at the corner of Reynolds and River roads in Westmoreland, New Hampshire. The 1.5-story wood-frame building was constructed in 1789 but was moved to its present location in 1846 and given an extensive high-quality Greek Revival treatment. It is one of few regional schoolhouses of the period to escape extensive later alteration. Its main facade has the appearance of a Greek temple, with four pilasters supporting a projecting architrave and triangular pediment. The main entrance is in a recessed area between the middle two pilasters.

The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984. It is now owned by the Westmoreland Park Hill Meeting House and Historical Society.
