Three words: The White Shadow
. Didn't the original Beverly Hills 90210
have one character age four years while the others aged three so they would all graduate together, and then the high school was pretty much never mentioned again?

Okay, it was 30 years ago, but mine didn't, and there were over 500 students in the class. I'm not sure how the order was determined - probably randomly. (In middle school, it was more or less by height, as they wanted the entrance of the students to go from shortest to tallest.)
Something else mine didn't have: the students moving their tassels from one side to the other separately, when they accepted their diplomas. "Traditionally," you wait until the end, and do it together. Of course, what usually happens is, everybody throws their hats into the air as soon as the last name is called.
