    In BrE, it's "at school". In AmE (I believe) it's "in school" or "in schools".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    South America is not a country, Batman, it's a continent, comprising a number of different countries. In some (possibly all) of them English is taught at school.

    Yes, it is mostly "in" school in AmE.
