Lincoln School, also known as the Lincoln Consolidated Rosenwald School, is a former African-American school in Pikeville, Tennessee, that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The school was built in 1925 with assistance from the Rosenwald Fund to house a black school that previously had been located in the Pikeville Chapel African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church.[2] The building design is characteristic of a Rosenwald school, with a gable roof, tall narrow batteries of windows, and short piers.[3] The school operated until 1965, educating children from kindergarten through grade 8.[4] It was listed on the National Register in 1993.[1]
