Robert E. Lee Elementary School is an elementary school in the Birmingham City Schools system located at 630 18th Street Southwest in the Oakwood Place neighborhood of West End. It was built in 1925 adjacent to West End High School, with some additions 3 years later. It was named for former Confederate General Robert E. Lee.
Under the most recent school consolidation plan proposed by acting superintendent Barbara Allen and approved by the Board, Lee Elementary would close in the Summer of 2011 with students transferring to a new school at the West End High School site.
