Drake graduates from high school!

We love us some Drake, and not just because he’s Canadian. The rapper recently earned his high school diploma after dropping out years ago.


Drizzy is a graduate!

Drake has officially completed all the needed course work and graduated from high school! Now, he’s caught up to his Degrassi character, Jimmy. Way to go!

“97% on my final exam. 88% in the course. One of the greatest feelings in my entire life. As of tonight I have graduated high school,” Drake tweeted.

Growing up in Toronto, the rapper attended Forest Hill Collegiate Institute and Vaughan Road Academy before dropping out.

“Thank you to my teacher Kim Janzen for spending the last 5 months working tirelessly with me!! OVO SOUND,” he tweeted later.

Drake joins a line of celebrities who have not given up on education post-fame — remember Justin Bieber’s graduation? Maybe the rapper will pursue post-secondary as well. Who knows? Either way, this is a great way to inspire his fans to continue learning.
