Hope Chinese Charter School (HCCS) is a public charter school that provides a Mandarin Chinese immersion education to elementary and middle school students. HCCS, located in the Beaverton School District, is currently offering grades K-6. One grade level will be added each year through 8th grade.
I was very impressed with your students’ performances, and I felt that HCCS is one of the top schools that I’ve worked with.

I just want to say that I have been very impressed by the quality of your after-school program. My son is always excited to tell me what he learned. I can tell that the teachers in the after-school program spend individual time with him, helping him complete his Chinese homework daily, which is very helpful to parents who work full-time or those who do not speak/write in Chinese. In addition, the teachers take initiative in teaching students math, Chinese poems/songs, and Chinese culture.
This cross-cultural experience taught me how friendly Americans are and I truly appreciate everything my host families did for me. Now that I am back in China, I miss them a lot and am looking forward to visiting them again someday, or perhaps they will visit to China to practice their Chinese!
