Swarthmore High School was a four-year public high school in Swarthmore, Pennsylvania serving the Boroughs of Swarthmore and Rutledge.

Swarthmore established its own independent school district when Swarthmore Borough incorporated in 1893. The Swarthmore and Rutledge School Districts merged in 1955. In 1971 the Swarthmore-Rutledge District merged with adjacent Nether Providence School District to create the Wallingford-Swarthmore School District.

Swarthmore High School became Strath Haven High School when it merged with Nether Providence High School in the fall of 1983. Swarthmore students were moved to Nether Providence High School.

The building that was Swarthmore High School is now the Swarthmore Rutledge School, an elementary school in the Wallingford-Swarthmore School District.
