    Can you change "where" to "that"?

    Here is the original sentence.

    (1) I am going to meet my friend at the school where he is attending.

    I want to change it a bit in two ways.

    (2) I am going to meet my friend at the school that he is attending.

    (3) I am going to meet my friend at the school he is attending.

    I am not sure if (2) and (3) are grammatically correct. They sound OK to me. Please help me. Thanks for helping me.

    I would simply say: "I'm going to meet my friend at his school."

    I agree with Teechar. My second choice would be "I'm going to meet my friend at the school he attends (or "he goes to")".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
