Kramer Elementary School in the MacArthur Park Historic District in Little Rock is a former elementary school that has been turned into artist lofts and exhibit areas.

The school, named after the district's first school board director Frederick W. Kramer, was constructed in the Romanesque Revival style in 1895. The school is located on the site of the prior Sherman School. Kramer Elementary housed the nationally-recognized Center for Early Development and Education created by Professor Bettye Caldwell of the University of Arkansas at Little Rock in 1969. The elementary shut its doors in 1978.

In the mid-1990s the school underwent a $3.5 million historic preservation/renovation effort.
