Capitalization

Postby mksarma » Wed Dec 19, 2012 5:19 pm

I am writing a story that goes in a school. Does the capitalization required for 's' in "the School" where ever used?

No capitalization for "the school".

school should start with lower case s, unless it's at the begining of a sentence. I'm a not native speaker so pls check with other too

Yes, like others have said, "the school" is not capitalized (e.g. You can take evening yoga classes at the school on Main Street.").

But if "school" is a part of a name, remember to capitalize it (e.g. You can take evening yoga classes at Washington High School on Main Street.)
