I am a junior in high school.
I am wondering if it's OK to simply insert the name of the school in the sentence
without messing up the structural integrity of the sentence
as in "I am a junior in JFK High School."
or should something else be changed along with the insertion of the name, say, the preposition?

Re: I am a junior in high school.
In American usage, a person is always a student 'at' a certain high school.
"I'm a student at JFK."
"I'm a freshman at Kennedy."
When it comes to leaving a high school, one is always 'from' that institution.
"I graduated from JFK in 08."
"I'm from Kennedy, class of 07."
