Questions about example sentences with, and the definition and usage of "School"

The meaning of "School" in various phrases and sentences

Q: residential school ne anlama geliyor?
A: In general, it refers to a "boarding school" where children are sent to live while they are educated. (I suppose it could also be said of a university, but that is not the usual meaning.)

Specifically, it often refers to (American) Indian boarding schools that were established in the US and Canada in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Native American children were sent to live and be educated at these schools in an attempt to assimilate them into modern society.
Q: here of the school ne anlama geliyor?
A: This is incorrect. Perhaps they meant to say "here at this school" ?
Q: Did you leave the school under less than good standing? ne anlama geliyor?
A: Good standing = you did well in school; you passed all your classes and never got expelled or suspended

The question is asking "When you left school, were you not on good standing?"

If you answer yes, it means you were not on good standing.
If you answer no, it means you were on good standing.

I hope that helps
Q: well out of school ne anlama geliyor?
A: In this case I think it's similar to a degree of success.. “达到某种程度的成功” because "success" itself is a big word and often refers to "success in life". A measure of success also keeps the definition of success more open, so that when a student makes small improvements he's also achieving "a measure of success", but just saying "to achieve success" it sounds like a student would be deemed a failure if he isn't doing extremely well in the class.
Q: I pulled it off as a high school student ne anlama geliyor?
A: Without context, it's hard to tell, but I believe that it means that this person successfully passed as a high school student, that he/she blended in. And, no one figured out that he/she wasn't a high school student.

Example sentences using "School"

Q: back in junior high school ile örnek cümleler göster.
A: You definitely can say that! Although, it's a lot more common to hear "Junior High" than "Junior High School" (Although it is technically correct).

Keep in mind, there are parts that have Junior High Schools, and parts that have Middle Schools. It's a pretty grey area as to how it is officially split, but Middle Schools typically are from 6th - 8th grade, and Junior High is from 7th-9th. I've seen other schools that do other things, but that's pretty common.

The important takeaway is that after 5th grade or so, there is a second school that kids attend.

Example sentences:

"When I was in Junior High, I used to hang out with my friends"

"Back in Junior High, I had a really great science teacher"

"Back in Junior High School, I was always the weird kid."


-- "Where did you learn to speak English?"
-- "I learned it back in Junior High."
