The Bowditch School is an historic school building at 80—82 Green Street in the Jamaica Plain neighborhood of Boston, Massachusetts. The three story brick and granite Classical Revival building was designed by Harrison Henry Atwood, a prominent local architect, and was built in 1892. Its main facade has a projecting three-part pavilion, with square entry openings at the base, and round-arch windows at the top level, with a modillioned cornice. It is named for Nathaniel Bowditch, a noted early 19th-century astronomer and mathematician.[2]

The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1990.[1]
