BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A North Dakota high school that opened in 2015 is preparing for its first senior graduation.

Legacy High School in Bismarck admitted 800 students in its first year, The Bismarck Tribune (https://bit.ly/2qoGyjp) reported.

“Without a sheet of paper with our name on it or anything to where we are now, it’s been an unbelievable ride,” Principal Tom Schmidt said.

Student body president Cody Knowlen said being the school’s first class was a difficult and rewarding process.

“It’s been kind of nice being the top dogs, but that also has its disadvantages,” said Knowlen.

Schmidt said the school’s 233 graduating seniors have been essential in starting up the $55.5 million school.

“The whole reason it has been successful is because of the kids,” Schmidt said.

Schmidt said the graduating class has immensely grown since their freshman year and they will be forever commemorated in a glass display in the school.

“We’re sad to see them go,” Schmidt said.

Legacy High School’s commencement ceremony is scheduled for May 28.

“It’s pretty cool to be the first graduating class,” said senior Keaton Smith.
