The America Street School was an historic school at 22 America Street in Providence, Rhode Island. The school was built in 1905 by Frederick H. Field and added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1987.

After years of neglect, it served only as a meeting place for the Veterans of Foreign Wars. It was listed as one of the "Ten Most Endangered Properties" by the Providence Preservation Society in 1995, and was demolished in 1996.[2]
