Victory High School (now known as Adamston Elementary School) was a public high school in Clarksburg, West Virginia that operated from 1917 through 1973. The school colors were black and orange. They were known as the Victory Fighting Eagles. The school is still in operation today as Adamston Elementary School. In 1998 a new bricked driveway was built in front the former high school to allow students to be dropped off and picked up in a safe environment. To cover the cost of this project, a brick wall was also established containing names of former Victory High Alumni, Faculty, Adamston Elementary Students and all veterans. Bricks were sold from $20 to $50 and totally covered the cost of the project.
Two state basketball championships were won. The first was by the 1933 team, coached by Farley Bell. The second team was coached by Howard "Doc" Hutson won in 1941.
