McKim's School, also known as McKim's Free School, is a historic school located at Baltimore, Maryland, United States. It is an archaeologically accurate Greek-style building. The front façade is designed after the Temple of Hephaestus, or Temple of Theseus, in Athens, Greece in granite. Six freestone Doric columns, 17 feet tall, support the entablature and pediment. The sides were derived from the north wing of the Propylaia on the Acropolis of Athens. It was designed by Baltimore architects William Howard and William Small and erected in 1833. It served as a school and youth training center until 1945, when the building was adapted for use as the McKim Community Center.[2]

McKim's School was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1973.[1]

It is included in the Baltimore Heritage Walk.
