みんな同じ地域で小学校から育ってきたところに学年で僕1人だけ渋谷から引っ越して入学したんだよね。

The で here confuses me, here is what I think the translation is and I'm not sure if mine is even correct.

When everyone from the same region grew up from elementary school, (Then the 2nd で confuses me)

I think the 2nd で serves as the location particle

When everyone from the same region grew up from elementary school, in the school year I was the only one who moved from Shibuya to transfer to a school.

I'm pretty much confused on how the particles are used.

学年で means 同学年で(in the same grade), so it means "I was the only one who moved from Shibuya in the same grade".

  • Might be a silly question but, で can be used even if the place isn't physical?

    で is not only used in "the place" like the English word "in".I think this "で" is similar to "among", Commented Aug 21, 2021 at 19:41
