The Middletown Woodrow Wilson High School is a former high school, now used as residential apartments, located at 339 Hunting Hill Avenue, Middletown, Connecticut. It is a three story structure, built of brick with concrete trim, with a prominent Classical Revival portico. It was built in 1931 and designed by Linus Baldwin, of Towner & Sellew Associates, in the Renaissance Revival style. It served as the city's high school until 1958, and then as a junior high school, before it was rehabilitated for residential use.[2]

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