School? College?

All the Americans are starting a new year of school (we’re half way through). I’m a little confused as to the terminology though… you talk about going back to “school”. Am I right in saying this refers to both high school and college (cos I’d be worried if some of you 20 year olds were going back to high school)? Over here school refers to high school (and also departments within university faculties). Uni refers to university (what you call college), and college to us is actually on-campus student accommodation. Bizarrée. Tell me what’s going on here…
