DANBURY, Conn. — Danbury High prides itself on its status as the largest high school in the state. And it holds its graduation ceremony outside on the football field to accommodate the large crowd of graduates, staff, families, friends and community supports.

And with that in mind, there are two important dates to keep in mind for graduation this year as 652 students step off at Danbury High.

Graduation for the Class of 2017 is set for Monday, June 19, at 5 p.m. in DHS Stadium.
