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.[1] 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.
