George W. Childs School is a historic school building located in the Point Breeze neighborhood of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It was built in 1893–1894, and is a three-story, three bay, brick building with brownstone trim in the Classical Revival-style. A three-story, nine bay yellow brick addition was built in 1928. It features a stone arched entrance, Palladian window, and copper cornice.
It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1988. In 2010, the school building was closed, and the school and students were moved several blocks north to the former Barratt Junior High School building.
