Synonyms of "Friends" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between Friends in high school and Friends from high school ?
A: It depends on what you want to say. Sorry in advance, this will be a little confusing…

*IN* or *AT* high school describes WHERE you met them

*FROM* high school describes what kind of friends they are

For example:

Where/when did you meet Bob and Joe?
- I met them in high school a few years ago.
- I just met them at school.

Who are Bob and Joe?
- They are my friends from high school. (This can be present or past, doesn’t matter if you are currently in school).


Note:
If you say “I met them in high school” it implies this is in the past and you are no longer in high school.

If you are currently in high school, you would say, “I met them *at* (high) school. (You would also just say “at school”, not “high school”)

If you want to say we met together (as in convened at a specific place/time, you already knew each other) you would say “met up at”. For example:
We met up at school before going to the football game together.
