OKLAHOMA CITY – The sounds of sixth grade musicians and the work of sixth grade artists will continue to be a part of the Classen School of Advanced Studies.

The Oklahoma City School Board has dropped its plan to make Classen a seventh through twelfth grade program and keep sixth graders at elementary schools.

That means Classen will continue to accept sixth grade students, although they will now face a later start on accepting applications and conducting auditions.

Earlier this year, the school board reversed another decision they made to prevent out-of-district transfers from attending the school.
