Center Street Middle School was a middle school in the Birmingham City Schools system located at 1832 Center Way South in South Titusville from 1955 to 2013.

The school building was constructed in 1955. Just six years later the board approved a $57,000 project to add four more classrooms. The addition was designed by Turner Smith & Batson and built by Murrahill Construction Co.

In 1989 Southern Progress chose Center Street Middle School for a continuing series of special projects including field trips, reading activities, and the "Center Street Photography Project" in which selected students were given cameras to document the world around them. The best photographs were exhibited to the public at the end of each year.

Another major addition to Center Street Middle School was completed in the 2000s.

In 2013, under the terms of the Alabama Accountability Act, Center Street Middle School was deemed a "failing school", permitting parents to claim tax credits to transfer students to another school. The school was taken off the list in 2014. In a school consolidation plan prepared by Superintendent Craig Witherspoon in 2013, Center Street Middle School closed. Most students were transferred to Arrington Middle School, with some going to a new 7th and 8th grade academic program housed at Carver High School.
