Queen Anne High School (1909–1981) was a Seattle Public Schools high school on Galer Street atop Queen Anne Hill in Seattle, Washington, United States. The building was converted to condominium apartments in 2007.

The school was built in 1908 with additions in 1929 and 1955, and is on the National Register of Historic Places (ID #85002916). It is also an official City of Seattle landmark.[2]

QAHS closed in 1981 due to decreasing enrollment. Students in the school's attendance area transferred to various high schools in the district. The school facility underwent renovation (adaptive reuse) to become a residential apartment building in 1986, with 137 apartments. In 2006 the residential apartments underwent renovation and conversion to condominium units.
