North River High School was a historic public school building located at Moscow, Augusta County, Virginia. Built in 1930, it was a brick building consisting of an auditorium/gymnasium as the core of the building with rectangular gabled blocks on either side containing two rooms with the projecting gable ends. It had a steeply pitched gable roof and entrance portico reflecting the Colonial Revival style. Additions were made to the building in 1942 and 1950. Also on the property was a contributing brick agriculture building.[3]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1985.[1]
