    At that time I still believed in fairy tales

    Hello.

    Are the following sentences grammatically correct?

    "At that time I still believed in fairy tales. It was like an oasis. But she broke my heart in front of all the High School."

    Thanks.

    Grammatically, yes.

    Logically, not so much. Mainly the "oasis" doesn't seem to fit very well. Maybe "dream" would work.

    There's no need to capitalize "high school." Also, consider using "students" or "high-school students" instead of "high school" in that sentence. Alternatively, you could say, "in front of the whole/entire school."
