The N. B. Borden School is a historic school building at 43 Morgan Street in Fall River, Massachusetts. It is a three story red brick building with a mansard roof pierced by shed-roof dormers, and brownstone beltcourses above each level. It was built in 1867-68, during a period of growth in the city, and was used for many years as a vocational training school. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.[2]

Also known as the Morgan Street School, it was named for Nathaniel B. Borden, owner of the Pocasset Mills, and politician who died in 1865. It was the oldest operating school in the city when it closed in 2007.[3] Students were transferred to the new Carlton M. Viveiros Elementary School.
