The Washington School is a historic school building at 8 School Street in Weymouth, Massachusetts. The 2-1/2 story wood frame building was designed by S. S. Woodcock and built in 1887. The six-room building has characteristic Queen Anne styling, including asymmetrical massing, varied gable treatments, use of decorative fish-scale shingles, and an elaborately decorated entry porch.[2]

The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1986.[1] It has since been converted into offices.
