The Robert E. Lee School is a historic former school building at 3805 West 12th Street in Little Rock, Arkansas. Now a local community and social service center, this Collegiate Gothic revival two-story masonry building was built in 1906-07 and twice enlarged. The original design was by Gibb & Sanders, and the additions were by Theo Sanders (1910) and Thomas Harding, Jr. (1930). The city used the building as a school until 1971. In the 1990s it was used as a teacher training facility, and was in 2005 repurposed as a community center.[2]

The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2009.[1]
