Millboro School, also known as Millboro Elementary School, Millboro High School, and Bath County High School, is a historic school complex located at Millboro, Bath County, Virginia. It was built in three phases. The original two-story, brick school building dates from 1916-1918. The Colonial Revival style building has a standing-seam metal hipped roof, with two tall central chimneys and a central hipped dormer. In 1933, a separate two-story, hipped roof, brick classroom structure with a gymnasium/auditorium wing was constructed to the east of the original building. The two structures were connected in 1962, with the addition of a one-story building. Also on the property is a contributing Home Economics Cottage (1933) and Agricultural Instruction Building (1936). The school closed in 1989.[3]

The complex was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2004.[1]
