I was really amazed by the intuition of these students! Keep up the good work Learning Matters!

I must say, this is a great idea! Thanks for capturing the brilliant work of our youth.

I’ve never been so proud to teach at HPHS! Everyone looked great and it really showed how students have the potential to change the world. It’s going to be their world, and the future looks bright. We carry a new world in our hearts, one we are building this very minute — Durruti

I am so glad at how the Eco Fashion Show turned out and to see all the designs come to life! Working hard and putting all the time and effort into the show was definately worth it! I had a great last year with everyone and hopefully this show remains memorable!

I love how us even tho we are only teenagers we can show that recycling really does matter and that this is just one step closer to a cleaner society. HPHS…we the greatest!

Excellent work, ECO team! I think Y-Lan should receive a great hand for this, without her innovative idea, this wouldn’t have ever happened. Each and everyone of us is the architect of our very own future! Class of 2011~
