W. A. Blount Junior High School was a junior high (or middle) school located at 113 North C Street.

Formerly the J. B. Lockey School, the school was converted to a junior high school in 1941 and renamed for William Alexander Blount, Sr.[1]

The Escambia County School District vacated the building in 1982. Frank McGinley purchased the building "as-is" for $5,000 in the mid-1990s. McGinley intended to turn one of the campus' smaller buildings into a private residence for himself, while converting the larger 39,000 square foot building into low-cost apartments for the elderly.[2]

Blount Junior High's school newspaper was called Put It Blountly.
