Tempe High School is a partially selective co-educational high school in Tempe, Sydney, Australia.

In 2004, a proposal to combine Tempe, Dulwich Hill, Marrickville and Newtown High Schools into a multi-campus college due to falling enrolments failed.[3] Instead, from 2005 the school became partially selective offering places based on academic performance as well as accepting local students.
