The Broad Street School is a historic former school building at 100 Broad Street in Norwich, Connecticut. The school, a two story yellow brick structure with a granite foundation and a variety of colored masonry trim, was designed by New York City architect Wilson Potter and built in 1897. It is a well-executed and well-preserved example of Romanesque styling.[2]

The schoolhouse was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on January 19, 1984,[1] at which time it stood vacant.[2]
