Classen School of Advanced Studies has been one of the wonderful schools I have attended in my life. It is full of academically and artistic students that challenge themselves and others to achieve more in life. If it weren't for Classen SAS I would have not learned to work as hard as I do now. Classen SAS prepares you for college and helps you gain recognition, as it is known nationally. The school offers a variety of majors from orchestra majors, international bachelorettes, drama, and many more! It has become a beacon of hope in the state of Oklahoma, as the students battle for a better future and education. Classen SAS has taught me many lessons that my previous schools had not. In one final note, it has helped me fight my fears of public speaking and helped me find the closest friends I could ever have.

Classen SAS is a phenomenal school! Thanks to the hard work of families and teachers alike, all of the students get extraordinary opportunities that most people can only dream of. From performing in Carnegie Hall to fundraising $20,000 to get the national Broadway tour set of Hairspray for our Spring Musical. With exposure all over the country, did I mention Harvard, its alumni have entranced our entire planet with their hardwork and passion. Classen School of Advanced Studies is truly a blessing.
While I learned quite a bit at this school, I don´t think that the school quite gets how to balance their school and home life. I have transferred from the school, but while I was attending Classen last semester, I was in the process of moving houses. One teacher in particular was very demanding on workload. While this itself is not bad in anyway, the way my situation was handled to this incident was one of the factors that caused me to leave. Since I was not able to arrive home until 7:00 pm for my mom and I getting adjusted and sorting out boxes, I did not have enough time to complete much of the homework. My mom and I both decided to talk to this teacher, who was uncompromising about my circumstances and had made no adjustment whatsoever. When I went to see the staff about offering me an alternative class for that teacher´s subject, I was met with refusal even though through the halls I could hear about how other kids were able to take online courses and even go to night school.
