The Noxen School, also known as Noxen High School, is a historic school building located in Noxen Township, Wyoming County, Pennsylvania. The original section was built in 1897, and is a 2 1/2-story, "T"-shaped frame building. It has a two classroom addition built in 1922. Originally built as a grade school, it was used as the high school from 1902 to 1951. It then housed an elementary school until closed in 1976. It has since been used for a variety of commercial and institutional purposes.[3]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2006.[1]
