Beaverton Super Kids: Meet Super Student Jackson Compton

6-year-old Jackson Compton is a First Grader at Hope Chinese Charter School (HCCS). Jackson is a super student because he is working one year above grade level!

For fun, Jackson plays in Beaverton Aloha Little League. He started Taekwondo at age 4 and has participated in 3 tournaments. He’s active in soccer, basketball, swimming and chess. Jackson enjoys all sports, chess but attending rock concerts with his dad is his special treat!

Another reason Jackson is a “super student” was the awards he received from HCCS during a special assembly. Jackson was chosen by his teachers for displaying the following characteristics:

  • Responsible and honest
  • Takes the lead in a group
  • Has a positive attitude
  • Speaks with confidence and presents ideas creatively
  • Celebrates success for self and others

In chess, he was awarded 2018 rookie of the year award from is school’s Chess club. He is also the highest rated kindergartener in the state of Oregon.

Jackson is in a language immersion school that provides Chinese immersion education with more emphasis in Chinese than English at all subjects at his current grade. Kumon reading provides additional English instruction in a structured way and since the daily worksheets do not require too much time for him to complete, he has shown a deeper interest in reading.
