More than 70 Nipomo students turned their tassels Saturday, marking the first graduating class of Central Coast New Tech High School.
Many of the graduates started as the school first opened its doors four years ago.
The students helped come up with the school’s mascot, traditions and campus design.
Central Coast New Tech is a special high school focused on project-based learning and 21st century skills.
The graduates are moving on to colleges and universities all over the United States.
