The Bridgeton School is an historic school building located at 16 Laurel Hill Avenue in Burrillville, Rhode Island.

The 1-1/2 story wood frame school house was designed by George W. Spaulding and built in 1897 by Nehemiah Kimball & William H. Gory. It served the Burrillville public schools until 1966. In 1970 it was reopened for use as a kindergarten as the Joseph Sweeney School. It was finally closed in 1995, and was then transferred to the Burrillville Historical & Preservation Society. It is the best preserved of Burrillville's late 19th century school buildings.[2]

The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2006.[1]
