Langley High School was a public school in the Sheraden neighborhood of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA.

Langley was one of ten high schools in the Pittsburgh Public Schools. On November 23, 2011 the Pittsburgh Board of Education approved a reform plan that would close Langley High School as an active school for the 2012-13 school year. The staff and student body would be relocated to the nearby Brashear High School, the district revealed plans for the Langley building to remain open as a middle school grades 6-8.

The high school ranked 114th of 123 high school in western Pennsylvania for academic achievement based on three years of PSSA results on: math, reading, writing and one year of science, by the Pittsburgh Business Times in May 2009.[4]

The building is an example of Tudor Revival architecture with the portions completed in 1923 and 1927 designed by MacClure & Spahr and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The high school is named for aviation pioneer and one-time University of Pittsburgh professor Samuel P. Langley.[5]
