The High Tops School, also known as Schoolhouse No. 9, is a historic school building at the corner of Reynolds and River roads in Westmoreland, New Hampshire. The 1.5-story wood-frame building was constructed in 1789 but was moved to its present location in 1846 and given an extensive high-quality Greek Revival treatment. It is one of few regional schoolhouses of the period to escape extensive later alteration. Its main facade has the appearance of a Greek temple, with four pilasters supporting a projecting architrave and triangular pediment. The main entrance is in a recessed area between the middle two pilasters.[2]
