Drake Graduates High School at 25

Drake has been hitting the books and he has finally received his high school diploma!

The 25-year-old rapper tweeted the exciting news to his fans.

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

FYI: Drake dropped out of high school at 15 to pursue a role on the show Degrassi: The Next Generation. He was one credit short of graduating at the time.

  • gossipguy

    LMAO this shows what a loser he is

  • mrs_fuzzybee

    Good for him but DAMN was he taking 1 class a semester? Geez, if he goes to college he should graduate around 85 or 90.

  • Brittany

    For those of you calling him a “loser”, he’s a millionaire and it wouldn’t have benefited him any if he had graduated or not. The point is he did, which is commendable. Congratulations!

  • Azahara

    He didn’t have to go back to school. He has a career and makes lots of money. It’s never too late to go back to school, and fulfill your dreams.

  • amanda

    in the words of daniel tosh “high school? how’d you do it?” (that’s sarcasm for the uninformed)

  • Steph

    @mrs_fuzzybee: he wasnt taking one class a semester. He failed a class making him One credit short

  • Journalistic

    Teen Moms: Take note.

  • Bey

    Congrad-tulations Drake. Way to go.

  • creed

    Good For him. He clearly didn’t need to but he had a goal and did it.

  • June

    Nobody should call him a “loser”. It’s great that he appreciates the value of education even being so well succeed. Congratulations, Drake. :)

  • Ashley

    Wait, so he dropped out of high school to go play a high school student? Yeah, okay there Wheelchair Jimmy. < People dont forget.

  • Becca

    Good for him. Congrats!

  • Haileigh

    He went back to school and earned his diploma. To those criticizing him – where are your blue ribbons? You may have a diploma; maybe you have a degree or even a masters. But your comments show that you are clearly lacking class and grace.

  • Dina

    early bird damn

  • Zarzuela

    That’s pretty inspiring!! I think education never ends in life but its good to get the formal education out of the way since that is the type of education you don’t always get a second chance at in life. Most millionaires don’t always have college degrees but are successful at business; i.e. learned informally on-the- job as well as have an aptitude for it. In any case, Drake reached an important goal and will hopefully inspire others who want to go back to school and want to achieve both academic and professional success.

  • Lawrence

    Good for Drake.

  • dani

    @gossipguy:

    Shame on you. It is never too late to go back to school and get an education. You are the loser.

  • emilly

    @gossipguy. Hes making millions of dollars without hs diploma and your calling him a loser? What are you doing with your life? lol people these days.

  • http://justjared sarah

    Awesome!!!!! good 4 you DRAKE…… :)

  • meh

    there is no age barrier in studying, but he did a great job ;)

  • couper

    I love how people are commending him because he now has a high-school diploma. Looks like education standards are somewhat lower now. I didn’t know that graduating high-school was something to be proud of.. Congratulations on taking 10 years to get 1 credit! /sarcasm

    By the way, tons of celebrities have degrees from Ivy league universities. I wouldn’t consider high-school an accomplishment.

  • thedude

    it must be a slow day

    he would have graduated high school when he was 15 – he was ONE credit shy of doing it at the time. he made a conscious decision (i guess knowing he could always go back and finish) AND he did.

    so i guess this means he’s smart, driven, deliberate and follows through. definitely a “loser”. ok, sure.

  • Dave Franco

    Good on him! But he’s rich at f**k. Doubt those were his grades… drake that smart? haha

  • Yohji

    @couper: Most of those celebrities were accepted by those Ivy League universities you mention because they were celebrities.

  • xax

    @Brittany: what an ignorant thing to say, lol!
