Hueytown Middle School, formerly Pittman Junior High School, is a middle school for grades 6-8 in the Jefferson County Schools system. It is located at 701 Sunrise Boulevard in Hueytown and feeds into Hueytown High School. The principal is Serra Peterson. The school has an enrollment of about 900 students, drawn from Brighton, Concord, Hueytown, and North Highland Elementary Schools.

The school traces its history to the Hueytown School built of logs in 1874. That school was replaced by a primary school on Upper Wickstead Road which burned in 1907. A new four-room building was constructed by the county on Dabbs Avenue the following year.

In 1957 that building was converted into a junior high school named for former Jefferson County Board of Education president J. W. Pittman. In the early 1960s the old building was replaced with a new building on the school's present site. Built in stages, the construction project was completed in 1965.

Hueytown Middle School took its present name in 2005. An $11.8 million renovation was undertaken in 2019 providing new administrative and counseling suites, media center, computer lab along with significant upgrades to mechanical and electrical systems, classrooms, laboratories, athletic and arts facilities.
