    Silk Hope School is a school that considers and accomadates the needs of individual students. My student began to multiply numbers in kindergarten. After notifing the school a program was set up to pull my student out of class once a week to work with a volunteer on advanced math. Now the student is in 4th grade and continues to reap the benefit of Math Stars. We as a family certainly appreciate the extra effort made by the school to accomodate his talent.

    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!!!

    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.
