    "At high school", Brit. English. "In high school", Am. English. You pay your money and take your choice.

    Re: the worst teacher

    When I was at school / When I was in secondary/high school

    I feel there is a definite case for "at" without a qualifier for school.

    He did not even know how much [scores in high school tests] should be reflected in the university entrance exam.

    He did not know what value should be put on the scores achieved in high school texts in {the setting of/in the assessing of/in taking/ in preparing for - it is not clear which is meant] the university entrance exam.
