There is no class today.
There is no class today. VS. There is no school today.
Let's meet after class. VS. Let's meet after school.
Do you feel any difference between them? For me it is not possible, so please help me out again. Thank you so much as usual.
'Class' will usually refer to a single session of 'school'. In lower education levels (US), children will meet in the same room all day long, so 'class' is not used as much in this sense. Older grades will have classes in separate rooms, and the distinction becomes more appparent. 'School', in your examples, would mean the whole school day. This would not apply at the university level, because classes can go into the evening.
