    You'll need to put each phrase in a sentence, first.

    Re: at/in school

    1. "at school": is British English.
    e.g.:I was at school with her sister.

    2. "in school": is American English.
    e.g.: I have a ten-year-old in school.

    3. "in school" in America can also mean ‘attending a university.

    I hope that helps.
