The Abbott Street School is a historic school building at 36 Abbott Street in Worcester, Massachusetts. The brick Romanesque Revival building was designed by Boston architect W. R. Forbush and built in 1894. It was built as a roughly rectangular building with a rounded projecting central bay topped by a conical roof. In 1905 a two story addition of similar styling was added to the rear.[2]

The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.[1] It has been converted to residential rental units.
