Brookhaven High School was a public high school located on the northeast side of Columbus, Ohio, United States. The school was a part of the Columbus City Schools system and opened in 1963. The list of notable alumni includes baseball player Paul O'Neill, football player Terry Glenn and basketball player Helen Darling.

The school colors were blue and gold and the school nickname was the Bearcats. Since 2004, the school had been participating in the Small schools movement. Brookhaven was divided into three small schools: Leadership, North Star, and Legacy. Plans for creating a middle school were announced many years before its closing but were never finalized.

After a decision made by the Columbus City Schools District, they announced that Brookhaven would be shut down by the end of the 2013-14 year due to declining population. With it, five elementary schools were closed as well. On May 29, 2014, Brookhaven closed its doors for the last time due to a failed levy. The building is now used by Columbus Global Academy.
