Students and school officials say the experience has made them like family.

"Friendship is one of the best one's I can say about being with the same 52 kids for my kindergarten year to my twelfth grade year. They are a great class. And I've enjoyed every bit of it. They will always be part of me," said Stephen Bullard.

"Today is a very proud day. We are all very close. We've been able to watch them grow up in our school. From the very first day we opened until tonight so it's an exciting time for all of us," said Assistant Principal Missy Council.
