The federal Public Works Administration (P.W.A.) contributed to the development of Rock Hill’s Arcade-Victoria School. “School buildings and classroom additions went up at Central School, Northside School, Arcade-Victoria School, and Ebenezer Avenue School, with A. D. Gilchrist the architect for all these PWA projects.”

The former Arcade-Victoria School has since been demolished.

    I attended this school from 1954 – 1959.
    I remember my principal was , Mes. Salters, My 5th grade teacher was a M.j rs. Thompson, very rude , ugly person. I had a learning disability back then, shd taunted me at the end of year in front of my entire class, as to weather I passed or not, cause I would not open my report card, as I was embarrassed because I knew I had not passed. Due to my report cards.. she would just not let it go till th ed bnb whole club azad ss was laughing….a terrible teacher…I grew up to become ed s teacher…s very good one!!!
