Newton H. Price Elementary School was an elementary school in the Birmingham City Schools system located at 532 28th Street Southwest in the Germania Park neighborhood of the West End community. The school was constructed in 1956 and named for Newton Price, former principal of Elyton, Hemphill and Lee Elementary Schools as well as West End High School.

Under the school consolidation plan proposed by acting superintendent Barbara Allen in 2010 and approved by the Board, Price Elementary closed in the Summer of 2011 with students transferring to the new West End Academy, a replacement for Lee Elementary School on the site of the former West End High School.
