Carol William Hayes K-8 School is a K-8 school in the Birmingham City Schools system, constructed in 2012 on the site of the former Hayes High School at 505 43rd Street North in North Avondale. The principal is Denise Mitchell.
Plans for the $18.25 million school were approved in 2008 and construction began soon after the demolition of the high school in 2009. The newly-elected Birmingham Board of Education debated the idea of building a new high school at the site, halting construction in February 2010. They decided the following September to proceed with the K-8 school, which accepted students from Whatley K-8 School and Gibson Elementary School.
