The High School of Montreal was an English-language high school founded in 1843. It was in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. It was less formally known as Montreal High School and from 1853 to 1870 was called the High School of McGill College, or the High School Division.

The school closed in June 1979, because of a decline in the English-speaking population.[2]
