学校在你附近(吗)? As someone has already pointed out, although 'near' in English can be used as a preposition, 近 in Chinese can only be used as an adjective. Hence your sentence is grammatically wrong. never say '近你' , use '在你附近' (in your vicinity) instead Hope this helps! Keep up your good work!

学校在你的附近。 We define 'near' as a preposition, it means "在…的附近".So we translate "near you" into Chinese "在你的附近”
