    to go past

    She WENT PAST me without saying hello.

    Both of them seemed likely to rise above their place; both went past high school, which neither of their parents had.


    Hi,
    I wonder what ''go past'' means in the second phrase, please.
    Thanks.

    Re: to go past

    They completed secondary education, and it seems probably went on to college.
