Barringer Academy of the Arts & Humanities (formerly Barringer High School and Newark High School), is a four-year comprehensive public high school serving students in ninth through twelfth grades in Newark, in Essex County, New Jersey, United States, operating as part of the Newark Public Schools. Some consider it to be the third oldest public high school in the United States. The school has been accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Secondary Schools since 1981.
As of the 2017-18 school year, the school had an enrollment of 864 students and 50.0 classroom teachers (on an FTE basis), for a student–teacher ratio of 17.3:1. There were 656 students (75.9% of enrollment) eligible for free lunch and 58 (6.7% of students) eligible for reduced-cost lunch.

In 1838, Nathan Hedges opened a high school in a building on Bank Street. On January 7, 1853, a three-story building was opened at the corner of Washington and Linden and had an enrollment of 498 boys and girls.
In 1875, Dr. William N. Barringer was hired to succeed George B. Sears as Superintendent of Schools. Dr. Barringer oversaw the construction of a second high school building at a cost of $300,000, which is the site of the current faculty parking lot. Construction started in 1878 and was completed in 1899. In 1907, the name of Newark High School was officially changed to Barringer, in honor of Dr. Barringer.
The Barringer High School Blue Bears compete in the Super Essex Conference, following a reorganization of sports leagues in Northern New Jersey by the New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association. With 1,115 students in grades 10-12, the school was classified by the NJSIAA for the 2019-20 school year in Group IV for most athletic competition purposes, which included schools with an enrollment of 1,060 to 5,049 students in that grade range. Until the NJSIAA's 2009 realignment, the school had participated in Division B of the Northern New Jersey Interscholastic League, which was made up of high schools located in Bergen County, Essex County and Passaic County, and was separated into three divisions based on NJSIAA size classification. For football, the school was classified by the NJSIAA as North Jersey Group IV for 2018-20.
In 1918, during future major league baseball player Moe Berg’s senior season, the Newark Star-Eagle selected a nine-man "dream team" from the city's best prep and public high school baseball players, and Berg was named the team's third baseman.
