Olean School No. 10, now known as Ivers J. Norton School, is a historic school building located at Olean in Cattaraugus County, New York. It was designed and built in 1908-1909, in the Prairie School style. It is three stories, nine bays wide and four bays deep. It is constructed of brick and stone and topped with a flat roof with deep overhangs. It features "Boys" and "Girls" entrances and large brick engaged columns on the front facade.[2] It remained in operation as a school building until 2012, when it (along with the Boardmanville school) was closed as a result of budget cuts implemented in the wake of New York's property tax cap. In late 2014 the school was purchased by a pastor and turned into a church.

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2010.[1]
