Martha Gaskins Elementary School (formerly Martha Gaskins Middle School) is an elementary school in the Birmingham City Schools system located at 200 Dalton Drive off Red Lane Road near Village Creek in the Roebuck neighborhood of the Roebuck-South East Lake community. Elvrita Finley is the current principal.

The school was constructed as a middle school, serving grades 6-8, in 2002 and named in honor of Martha Gaskins, a former member of the Birmingham Board of Education and 22 year veteran teacher and administrator in Birmingham schools.

In a school consolidation plan prepared by Superintendent Craig Witherspoon in 2013, nearby North Roebuck Elementary School closed and Martha Gaskins Middle School was converted into an elementary school feeding Smith Middle School and Ossie Ware Mitchell Middle School.
