Adelaide Avenue School is a historic school building located at Canandaigua in Ontario County, New York. It was built about 1890 and is a one story, polychrome brick structure on a raised basement. It features a variety of picturesque late 19th century decorative features in the Queen Anne style, such as a multi-gabled roof surmounted by a louvred cupola. It is a typical example of a late 19th-century ward school, along with the Saltonstall Street School.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984.[1]
