Zendaya Graduated From High School And Even BFF Taylor Swift Cried

With their insanely busy schedules, it's a miracle any celebrity manages to go to school.

But Zendaya didn't only attend school -- she graduated from Oak Park High School in Oak Park, California yesterday afternoon.

Zendaya, along with Olympic athlete and classmate Gabby Douglas, attended the school's independent studies program that allows for flexible schedules.

According to reports, the ceremony, which took place at 5 pm yesterday, boasted the largest audience in the West Coast school's entire history.

The Disney star and part-time activist documented her big day on social media.


She didn't hold back her excitement.


Her classmates were pretty stoked to have her there, too.

After graduating, Zendaya took to Instagram to preach the importance of education.

She wrote,

Shout out, not just to all the 2015 grads but to the soon to be! Please remember knowledge is one of the most powerful gifts we have the privilege of receiving…don't take that for granted. To every soon to be grad, know that you CAN do it! (if I can get through it then anyone can) It's a long road, so many things will pose as obstacles in your way and at times the end seems further and further away, but please remember the importance of that beautiful mind you have and all the limitless powers you hold. All my love #sorryforgettingdeep.

And bestie Taylor Swift congratulated her pal on Twitter.

I'M NOT CRYING, YOU ARE. @Zendaya #ProudOfYou pic.twitter.com/u4tZ737QuW — Taylor Swift (@taylorswift13) June 12, 2015

It was clearly a very exciting day for everyone -- and rightfully so.


Congrats, Zendaya, and all other grads from the class of 2015!
