Paris District High School (PDHS) is a regional high school in Paris, Ontario, Canada. The school itself was built in 1923, replacing the previous grammar school which had been built in 1858, and was known officially as Paris High School until a large addition was constructed in the late 1960s.

In 2004, PDHS served students from Paris and other towns found in the immediate area, including St. George, Drumbo, Burford, Princeton and Glen Morris. The school maintains rigorous academic standards, with over 30% of the Class of 2001 graduating as Ontario Scholars.
