Drake graduates high school after dropping out 11 years today

Toronto rapper Drake, 26, has graduated from high school, 11 years after dropping out.

Born to a Jewish mother, the former student of Forest Hill Collegiate Institute in Toronto quit school at the age of 15 to pursue his dream of becoming famous, starting out as an actor on a Canadian teen drama called Degrassi: The Next Generation.

His decision wasn't something his Jewish mother – now a retired educator – was proud of.

The rapper tweeted that that he's very excited and feels very accomplished.

He wrote this Oct. 17: “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!"
