AAE Q151: 'in/at school'

Hello!
Which is more correct?

We studied basic English in school? vs. We studied basic English at School?
Thank you!

Hi,

The only difference is that "in school" is American English and "at school" is British English.

I've thought that only 'at' is correct in such cases. So, could we say 'in work' instead of 'at work'? And what about 'in home' vs 'at home', but 'in home' really sounds weirdly.

It seems a little more than I need to check the information, because I was thinking: Why does not my GLOG these things!

Hi:
I also think the only correct option for AE is "at". For instance for Toefl/Toic exams, "at" is the correct option.
