High school is a name used in some parts of the world, and particularly in North America, to describe the last segment of compulsory secondary education. It is preceded by primary education. High school is also the name used to describe the institution in which the final stage of compulsory education takes place. In the United States, high schools generally consist of grades 9, 10, 11, and 12, although the inclusion of grade 9 varies by school district.
 
Classen School of Advanced Studies is a public combined middle high school with grades 6th to 12th in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The Oklahoma City Public Schools magnet school, participates in the IB, International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme, and offers fine arts courses. Classen was originally established in 1919 as a junior high school. It was built on land that was part of an area that was being developed by Anton H. Classen, and 6.33 acres was purchased by the Oklahoma City Public Schools Board of Education for dollars 55,100. The three story brick building was enlarged in 1921, 1923, 1925, 1934 and 1957.
 
The school was converted to a high school in 1925, graduating its first senior class in the spring on 1926. In 1994 the school was changed to the Classen School of Advanced Studies, a magnet school for students in grades 6 to 12, and its first class graduated in May of 1997. As the IB Program only covers grades 11 to12, IB majors in grades 6 to10 are considered pre-IB and attend honors classes to prepare them for the IB Program. This emphasis on grades 11 to 12 is one reason Classen is sometimes compared with the nearby Oklahoma School of Science and Math.
 
Classen School of Advanced Studies is generally considered superior for sciences such as physics, chemistry, biology and advanced math. Although Classen does offer many advanced math and science courses, they only offer one physics class. Classen tends to focus on the liberal arts. Also, Classen has a strong visual and performing arts program. All of the VPA Programs have won many awards, including the theatre department, which has won the Oklahoma State One-Act play contest for three years in a row.
 
At Classen School of Advanced Studies, their mission is to provide a learning environment where students are challenged to reach their individual potential in the achievement of knowledge and the development of personal, cultural and democratic values essential for future success.
