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.

My experience at Classen SAS has been an experience like no other. Classen is a wonderful establishment that allows you to grow and show off your creative expression in so many more ways than one can imagine. I have been attending this school since the 6th grade and i wouldn't have wanted to get an education anywhere else in the state of Oklahoma. By attending one of the top schools in the state I feel that I am beyond prepared to face any challenge set before me, whether academically, socially, or even morally. I am proud to be able to call Classen School of Advanced Studies my school!
I felt as if I have found my second home at Classen School of Advanced Studies (CSAS). In my honest opinion, Classen SAS is very unique compared to other schools in the district. With my small graduating class, I was able to bond with each and every one of my peers. It was an experience that many students will not get at a larger public school. Academically, Classen has been preparing students for college ever since it reopened as a high school. The IB program presents an academic challenge to those who wish to excel. However, if that is not the route the student wishes to take, there are also many extracurricular programs that are offered. Some include: piano, guitar, drama, choir, and many more. Overall, my experience at Classen was one of a kind. I had nothing but good memories at this wonderful school.
