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

The meaning of "School" in various phrases and sentences

Q: What does residential school mean?
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: What does here of the school mean?
A: This is incorrect. Perhaps they meant to say "here at this school" ?
Q: What does Did you leave the school under less than good standing? mean?
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: What does well out of school mean?
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: What does I pulled it off as a high school student mean?
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: Please show me example sentences with back in junior high school.
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."

Q: In school, how do you call your teachers? I mean do you use their last names with Mr. or something? like How are you, Mr. Brown? or just you just call them "Teacher", like " How are you, Teacher?"

Thank you.
A: In general, it is Mr. [last name] for male teachers, Mrs. [last name] for married female teachers, and Miss. [last name] for unmarried female teachers. Ms. [last name] works for any female teacher, and is often used if you don't know if she's married or not. That's for all ages/grades. Some young kids will call their teacher "Teacher", but that usually stops when they get older. From my experience, kids stop calling them "Teacher" by middle school (6th grade and up). It is usually considered rude for students to call teachers by their first name. Teachers usually tell their students at the beginning of the semester what they prefer to be called. Some teachers (though not commonly) are okay with students calling them by their first name.

When you get into college (I don't know about universities, but I imagine they are similar), teachers are called instructors. Instructors will also tell you what they prefer to be called on the first day of class. The Mr./Mrs./Miss/Ms. [last name] still applies, but some instructors have a PhD, and are called "Dr." Some of those instructors don't like to be called "Mr./Mrs./Miss/Ms", and some of them don't care. Some are fine with students calling them by their first name. Sometimes students and instructors get closer, or even become friends, and in those cases, students usually call them by first name, or even a nickname. When talking about them to other people, students often refer to them by last name.
