The Levi F. Warren Jr. High School is a former public junior high school building (grades 7–9) located at 1600 Washington Street, in the village of West Newton, in Newton, Massachusetts. It was named for Levi F. Warren, who graduated in 1854 from what is now Bridgewater State College and taught 21 years in grammar schools in Salem and in Newton, where he was a principal in West Newton. Built in 1927 of redbrick, it was designed in a mixture of the Colonial Revival and Georgian Revival styles by noted Boston architects Ripley and LeBoutillier. On March 16, 1990, the building was added to the National Register of Historic Places.[1]
