Queen of Peace High School is a Roman Catholic high school for girls located in Burbank, Illinois. It is located in the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Chicago, adjacent to its brother school, St. Laurence High School.

Queen of Peace was established in 1962 by the Sinsinawa Dominican Sisters. It used St. Laurence High School for the 1962-63 school year due to construction delays, and began classes in its own newly built facility in September 1963.[2]
