In the title compound, C15H13NO2, the isoxazole unit and the attached benzene ring are almost coplanar, making a dihedral angle of 1.42 (8)°. The benzyl ring is inclined to the isoxazole ring by 74.19 (8)° and is in a +sc conformation with respect to the benzisoxazole unit. In the crystal, C—H...O hydrogen bonds link the molecules, forming zigzag chains propagating along the b axis. There are also π–π interactions present involving the isoxazole and benzyl rings [centroid–centroid distance = 3.5209 (10) Å], and C—H...π interactions involving the benzene ring of the benzoisoxazole unit and the methylene bridging group.
