  • I attended Upchurch from kindergarten through 5th grade I loved it, the teachers, the staff, and even the food(it is way better than east hokes food)while I( was there one of my favorite teachers was Mrs.Johnson the old lady with the white hair she was so nice and a very patient woman. I am now doing a project on Hoke County for my school and i chose Upchurch because I love this school.
