    This may sound a little rude and I don't want to cause a fire storm here, but graduating high school isn't always that big of an achievement anymore. Especially not out in the suburbs. With all of the programs to help the 'problem students' and the students who have learning disabilities, pretty much anyone can graduate with a high school diploma. The system is actually set up to cater to students who are at the lower end so they don't drop out. I was an honor student and because I was on the upper end my classes got cut in order to fund more programing for the 'behaviorally challenged students' (in my school these were the kids that constantly skipped classes and had their own faculty member paid to help them with their homework and to guard the door in between classes so they wouldn't skip). This never seemed right to me. I guess growing up in a small suburb, you didn't drop out and the few students who did were always ostracized.

    Congrats to her. How many tween or adolecent children that are in the celebrity business actually go to school? I bet not many. She was a fantastic child actress. I will say about the only decent one out there not looking for all kinds of dirty publicity. I hope that she stays the way she has been and entertains us all alot more in her upcoming movies.

    Crespi Carmelite is an all male school. She actually graduated from Campbell Hall Episcopal High School.

    with the shitty state of education in our country nowadays, it's amazing anyone can graduate from high school.

    #1: Samtra, you're an idiot and a snob. Have a great day.

    #2: I've always liked Dakota. She's one of only a few young actresses in Hollywood today who seems to rise above all the nonsense that surrounds her. Selena Gomez should take lessons from her.

    Grats to her.

    Congrats to a normal girl, who just happens to act during her spare time. Hollyweird, take note.

    Why do you have to be so snarky about this? How many actresses/actors actually DO graduate with their class anymore? Barely any. And that's not a good thing. It's impossible to "go back" and get that kind of life experience once it sails past you. I am proud of her and glad that she was able to have this life milestone. For many, this is the only graduation ceremony they will ever get. And I don't agree with some of the comments here. Getting through HS with honors is not all that easy. If they want to complain, then let's address how damn simple it is to get the "2 hour" version of HS handed to you because you are pregnant or a discipline case. That's something to complain about.

    Perez, you're no longer a viable source for my entertainment news. Crespi is, indeed, an all boys Catholic school, Dakota graduated from a co-ed Episcopal school.

    Re: Samtra – While I understand your point I want to give the benifit of the doubt and assume you are refering to behaviorally challenged students and not ones with learning disabilities. There are so few jobs and opportunities for people with any form of disabililties and the programs in high school for them are so that they gain skills that enable them to get any job possible. Honors students will always succeed no matter what, but these children won't, and they need the help. Maybe those honors students could even go tutor students with learning disabilities, and help them achieve to make society a better place.
