The Latimer School (also known as "The School House Apartments") in the East Allegheny neighborhood of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, is a building from 1898. It is a massive 4 story yellow brick building with a variety of window types and placement. The school was closed in 1974 because there was no outdoor play area. It was purchased for conversion into apartments in 1984.[2]

It was designed by the German-born Pittsburgh architect Frederick C. Sauer (1860-1942)

The school building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1986.[1]
