"чья школа там" got marked as incorrect. Could это be omitted?

It is a less natural construction, but I think it should be accepted as well. Try to report it.

Чья школа это там is rejected, purely for bad syntax. Does it violate some principal, or could it actually be acceptable if one intended to really stress "over there" as opposed to "over here" ???

(It would be nice if DL software could say something more appropriate than "You used the wrong word" for pure syntax problems like this!)

Чья это там школа sounds outright wrong to me. Is it my problem? (

This word order is very confusing for me. When do you put stuff "in the middle" (like in this case, "whose this there school"), and when do you not?

Shouldn't “over there" been translated as «вон там»?
