James R. Ludlow School is a historic elementary school located in the Yorktown neighborhood of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It is part of the School District of Philadelphia. The building was designed by architect Irwin T. Catharine (1883–1944) and built in 1926–1927. It is a three-story brick building, nine bays wide with projecting end bays in the Late Gothic Revival-style. It features a one-story, stone entrance pavilion with a Tudor-arched opening.[2] The school was named for the Hon. James R. Ludlow (1825-1886).[3]

The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1988.[1]
