Today is #SpiritDay (oh yeaaaa, fist-pump to that!) and Drake is def showing his spirit... well, school spirit that is! We are so happy to report that Drizzy has accomplished yet another huge life milestone and we aren't talking about his addicting tunes that we play on repeat, but rather a more personal accomplishment.... graduating from high school!
It's been 10 years since he made the decision to drop out of his Toronto high school for
the love of Jimmy Brooks acting. Perhaps the decade-long mark made the 25-year-old rapper decide to spend his summer in school. Das right, between touring, recording and whatnot he was workin' his ass off with a private tutor to reach this exciting day! What a Maj *said in Rachel Zoe voice* moment for him! Do you think he will walk with the graduating class? Oh my, how exciting would it be to say you graduated with the dreamy mega-star!? Drake tweeted:
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!— Drizzy (@Drake) October 18, 2012
Thank you to my teacher Kim Janzen for spending the last 5 months working tirelessly with me!! OVO SOUND— Drizzy (@Drake) October 18, 2012
And in case you're wondering who Kim Janzen is we did some snooping around for ya. Kim is Drake's teacher from back in the day. That's right! When Drizzy was in high school as a teen Kim taught him and through the years the two kept in touch. So when he decided to go back to school her enlisted her help. According to a source at Vaughan Road Academy (we totally called the school), where Kim taught, she was a favorite amongst students and now Drake!
