BRADENTON, Fla. — A high school in Florida is charging parents $200 for a row of the best seats in the house at graduation.

According to the Bradenton Herald, Manatee High School charged $200 for prime seating at the May 31 graduation ceremony.

The tickets sold out in less than four hours.

The $200 included an entire row of seating that could accommodate 15 people.

The school also announced seniors will be charged a $20 fee to offset the cost of the ceremony. This year’s event is expected to cost $12,000.

While student fees are common, parents paying for prime seating is rare.

The 10 rows of seats at $200 each will bring in about $2,000.
