    in school and at school

    I am very happy to know this site. ^^
    Thank all the peope who reply to the questions. ^^

    My question is...

    Is there any difference between 'in school' and 'at school'?

    I wonder what it is, if any.

    Re: in school and at school

    Hello, I am not a teacher,

    but for me the difference between these both prepositions is the following:

    If you are "in the school" you cannot be outside the school and with the use of the preposition 'at', you can be outside.


    I am in the subway. (You are inside).
    I am at the subway (You are outside the station).

    Have a nice day.
