Can a person in the U.S. on L-2 status attend school?
A person's L-2 visa status is typically dependent on that of the L-1 visa holder. As long as the L-1 visa holder maintains his/her status in the U.S., the L-2's visa status will remain current. L-2 visa holders may certainly attend school and in cases where they have an approved EAD, L-2 visa holders may also work. Just be aware that when submitting the L-2 visa to show status in the U.S., an employer, school, or even an immigration officer at the port of entry may ask to see the L-1 visa holder's documents showing their L-1 visa status as well.
