North Roebuck Elementary School was a Birmingham City Schools elementary school for grades 1-8 located at 300 Red Lane Road, backing up to Village Creek in Birmingham's Roebuck neighborhood. Before Martha Gaskins Middle School was constructed adjacent to it in 2002, North Roebuck Elementary fed into Smith Middle School.
A 1961 addition to the school, designed by Warren Knight & Davis, provided nine new classrooms, a conference room, and restrooms. Cab Construction Co. completed the addition at a cost of $150,000.
When the school closed in 2015, Martha Gaskins Middle School was converted into an elementary school to take its place. In 2022 Birmingham City Schools proposed budgeting $7 million toward converting the former elementary school into a Pre-K center.
