Aliza is working 4+ years above grade level! Thanks to Kumon of South Beaverton



Aliza is 17 years old and a junior at Mountainside High School. In December 2021, she officially completed the Kumon program, both math & reading/writing! This means that Aliza is working 4+ years above her grade level, tackling early college level math as a junior in high school. Having started the program at 8 years old she showed amazing work ethic and perseverance, finishing the entirety of the Kumon program in 9 years. It took a great deal of motivation and consistent hard work to power through the obstacles that this pandemic presented, and Aliza continues to excel despite these challenges.

Outside of Kumon Aliza is an active member in her school and community. She is the Vice President of NAHS (National Art Honor Society) at Mountainside High School, as well as the Vice President of FASCA (Formosa Association of Student Cultural Ambassadors). She also received a Gold Key Medal at the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards! In her free time Aliza explores various arts and hobbies such as photography, cooking, scrapbooking, hiking, coding & volunteering.

Aliza’s parents say, “Kumon has helped our daughter be more independent and learn prominent self-management skills, as well as school knowledge that is pivotal to her future.”

We are in awe of Aliza’s drive, ambition, and the extent to which she has involved herself in her community. We know she will continue to make positive impacts in the world around her and we cannot wait to see them.
