Eastern Female High School, also known as Public School No. 116, is a historic female high school located at Baltimore, Maryland, United States. It was built in 1869-1870 and is typical of the Italian Villa mode of late 19th-century architecture. It is a two-story brick structure that features a square plan, towers, and bracketing. Eastern Female High School was founded in 1844 and was one of the pioneer high schools in the country devoted to secondary education for women. It was designed by Baltimore architect Colonel R. Snowden Andrews (1830-1903). In 1907 the high school moved to larger quarters, and since then a grammar school has occupied the building.[2]

Eastern Female High School was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1971.[1]
