Dallas High School, commonly referred to as Crozier Tech, is a former public secondary school in Dallas, Texas. It is the alma mater of several notable Americans, including former U.S. Attorney General and U.S. Supreme Court Justice Tom C. Clark.[3]

Built in 1907, the 3.5-story classical revival structure is vacant. It is located in the downtown City Center District next to the Pearl/Arts District DART light rail station.

Dallas High School changed names several times, becoming Main High School in 1916, Bryan Street High School in 1917, Dal-Tech High School in 1928, Crozier Technical High School in 1942, and Business Magnet School in 1976. The school closed in 1995.
