Is it correct to say “she is in my same school”?
Rather not. Better is "she is in the same school as me"
From Practical English Usage (Swan):'We normally use the before same ... before a noun we use "the same as":
"You've got the same idea as me, (NOT ... my same idea)""Her hair's the same colour as her mother's" '

"she is in the same school as me" may be colloquially accepted, but should be avoided in formal writing."She goes to the same school as I do" and "She is in the same school as I am"are grammatically correct and are preferred, to my humble opinion.More grammar-related subject matter is available here: http://gedeasy.com/ged-online-language-classes/
