"we read and write in school" should be accepted as well?

Is it correct English? Not a native and i never learnt that you can say "in school". It would suggest in a building but it doesn't fit this context.

I am a native English speaker from California and yes we would say at or in school because school is not only a building but also an institution. In other cases of institutions like let’s say a university we would add an “a” ahead of it as “ in a university.
