Powderly Elementary School was an elementary school in the Birmingham City Schools system located at 1901 20th Street Southwest at the intersection of Dawson Avenue Southwest in the Powderly neighborhood. Formerly part of Jefferson County Schools, the school became part of the Birmingham system when the neighborhood was annexed into Birmingham in 1953-54.
Under the school consolidation plan proposed by acting superintendent Barbara Allen and approved by the Board, Powderly Elementary closed in the Summer of 2011 with students transferring to the new West End Academy which replaced Lee Elementary School on the former site of West End High School.
