Roodeschool (Gronings: Roschoul) is a community situated in the northeast of Groningen province in the Netherlands and forming part of the municipality of Eemsmond. Roodeschool's railway station is the northernmost in the Netherlands.

The name, which means "red school", is derived from the local noteworthiness of the red roof tiles of a village school which once stood in the vicinity.
