Joseph C. Ferguson School is a historic school building located in the Templetown neighborhood of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It was designed by Irwin T. Catharine and built in 1921-1922. It is a three-story, nine bay, "U"-shaped, brick building on a raised basement in the Colonial Revival-style. It features large stone arches, a double stone cornice, and brick parapet.
The building is currently the home The U School, an innovative high school in the School District of Philadelphia. The U School and Building 21, two schools with a non-selective lottery-based admissions process, opened at the Ferguson building during the 2014–2015 school year. Building 21 relocated after three academic years, and The U Scuool remains.
