Peak School’s senior graduation was a truly moving affair this year.

The Frisco school celebrated commencement on Copper Mountain’s Super Bee chairlift Friday morning, handing out diplomas to 14 graduates as they reached the top of a literal (and metaphorical) mountain.

Graduates, who rode the lift with their families, were congratulated on the way down by fellow grads and teachers.
