Zendaya is officially a high school graduate – and she had some star power to back her up on her big day.

Val Chemerkovskiy, who danced with the 18-year-old Disney star during season 16 of Dancing with the Stars, shared a snap from Zendaya’s recent graduation.

“From the Met straight to set to graduating high school. Proud of my lil Zendayachka. #driven #fam @zendaya,” the 29-year-old dancer wrote.

On May 4, Zendaya was one of dozens of glamorously dressed stars who attended the Met Gala in New York City. The fashionista wore a custom Fausto Puglisi gown with a crown, a matching armband and chunky cuffs.

Despite attending stylish events and starring in her own Disney Channel series, K.C. Undercover, Zendaya still gets excited about the same things as non-famous high schoolers – including getting her senior portrait.

Two weeks ago, the actress shared a shot of her high school photo, writing, “Senior portraits….I was so excited, I’m such a freakin dork.”

Zendaya isn’t the only famous teen who is graduating from school this year. Kylie Jenner told fans on Twitter that she is set to complete high school in one month.
