The Old Rockville High School and East School are a pair of historic former school buildings at School and Park Streets in the Rockville section of Vernon, Connecticut. The old high school is a large Richardsonian Romanesque building, erected in 1892 at the junction of School and Park. It served the town as a high school until 1924, and now houses school administrative offices. The East School, located further down School Street, is a less architecturally elaborate building with Italianate styling which was built in 1870.[2]

The buildings were listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1981.[1]
