Silk Hope is an amazing school with amazing staff and a really great principal who cares about all the students.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted August 1, 2013

Silk Hope elementary ensures each student receives personal attention to their individual needs. Also, the staff is tuned into watching and listening for any bullying going on in the school.


Posted September 20, 2012

This school is awesome!!! The teachers are amazing and the principle Chad Morgan is the best principle I've seen since I went to school at Bennett elementary school. Angie Brady Andrews was then my social studies teacher and she is now the principle at Siler city elementary. I would love to see Miss Andrews and Mr. Morgan team up in one school!! At the moment the vice principle at Silk Hope elementary is Valencia Toomer and believe me she isn't hitting on much!! Miss Toomer is rude and over steps her power on a daily basis!! Other then Valencia Toomer I have no problem with Silk Hope school. My kids love it!!!

Silk hope is the absolute best school! Every student gets treated with respect and they give you the attention you need to help learn and get good grades! I am in eighth grade and I am in Algebra 1! And I am passing with a 99 average! The school, the programs(band) are out of this world!! - a student. (class of June 2012)


Posted January 10, 2010

This school is a blessing! If you are a Christian, and want your kids in a school with good morals, Silk Hope is the last one in existance I think!!! The teachers are fantastic, the help programs are great, and the school as a whole, is the best I have ever seen (and I'm pretty picky when it comes to my kids)! It doesn't get any better than Silk Hope!!! God bless them!!!!

This is a great school,I am so glad my child is a student at Silk Hope. The teachers work hard with all students and even harder with students who need more help. I would like to think them. F.E.W.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 North Carolina used End-of-Grade (EOG) tests to assess students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and grades 5 and 8 in science. The EOG is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of North Carolina. Students must pass the grade 8 EOG test in order to graduate from high school. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level on the tests.
