Haskell School is a historic school building located at Troy in Rensselaer County, New York. It was built in 1894 and is a "T"-shaped, three story, red brick building on an elevated limestone basement in the Renaissance Revival style. It has a flat roof with a massive metal cornice. It features a majestic front entrance with a gated arch rising two stories over a tiled vestibule. The arch includes the inscription "Haskell School" in a terra cotta frieze. It was used as a school until 1975, then converted to apartments after 1977.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2003.[1]
