I have a sentence.

Mi clase está en el edificio A.

My teacher says I should use es because I'm describing the location of an event. But, I disagree. If you look at this in English, which I think is safe to do for this case, you get

My class is in Building A.

This isn't describing the location of an event, it's simply describing the physical location of the class. Now, if you say

My class takes place in Building A.

Then, I could see what he is saying.

What do you guys think?

What I usually tell people: Don't translate word by word and Spanish works in a different way than English. Your teacher is right; people don't usually say, "My class takes place in Building A."
Ok. But, say I keep está there. What does the sentence mean?

My class is in Building A.
? I thought you agreed with my teacher who said I should put

Mi clase es en el edificio A.

So, I was wondering what is wrong with

Mi clase está en el edificio A.

What it would mean to you?

I'm sorry I read too fast. I agree with you: should be está.

Mi Clase está en el edificio A / My class is in Building A

Sorry.

I agree with you. "Clase" can refer to the physical room/place: mi clase está en el edificio A, or to the lesson imparted: mi clase es en el edificio A.

It also can refer to a body of students who are taught together or graduate together.

ElenaI agree with you. "Clase" can refer to the physical room/place: mi clase está en el edificio A, or to the lesson imparted: mi clase es en el edificio A.

In my country we don't say clase to refer to the physical room. We mostly use it to refer to the lesson, and rarely to mean the body of students.
AuserI'm sorry I read too fast. I agree with you: should be está.
Well, I disagree. To me it should be es.
La clase de Biología es en el edificio nuevo.
It is supposed that the class will take place in that classroom, in that building for a period of time. If you ask Where are the students?, then you answer Ellos están en la sala 509. Or, as Elena says, La clase está en el edificio A.
YOUR TEACHER IS RIGHT!!!!

I KNOW WHERE YOU ARE GETTING CONFUSED. BECAUSE THE RULE SAYS THAT IN SPANISH YOU USE ESTAR TO TELL ABOUT A LOCATION. HOWEVER IN THIS CASE YOU ARE NOT DESCRIBING A TEMPORARY CONDITION SINCE YOU WILL TAKE THE CLASS IN THAT BUILDING FOR A YEAR. SHE KNOW WHAT SHE IS TALKING ABOUT, BELIEVE ME I AM A NATIVE SPEAKER AND I HAVE NEVER USE ESTA FOR A SENTENCE LIKE THAT.

GOOD LOOK ....................
