Norwood Elementary School was an elementary school in the Birmingham City Schools system located at 3136 Norwood Boulevard. The last principal was Errol Watts.

The school is named for the residential subdivision of Norwood that was developed in 1912 by the Birmingham Realty Company. The school building was constructed between 1923 and 1925 to designs by the noted Birmingham firm of Warren Knight & Davis. An addition was completed in 1928.

Under a consolidation plan proposed by acting superintendent Barbara Allen and approved by the Board in 2008, Norwood Elementary would have been expanded into a K-8 school. Instead the school was closed in 2013 with students moving to Lewis Elementary School.
