St. George's School (Arabic: مدرسة المطرانMadrasat al-Mutran) is a boys' school in East Jerusalem run by the Anglican diocese of Jerusalem.

St. George's School is located next to St. George's College, just outside the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem. The school was established in 1899. The author of the Thomas the Tank Engine series of books, Rev. W Awdry, taught at the school in 1933-1936.[2] Built in the affluent Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood, it served as a place where Jerusalem's Muslim elite would send their sons for secondary education.[3]
