With an explicit modeling (e.g. site or group) you can answer this question unambiguously.

In any case it would seem desirable to be explicit about the extent of every school so an area representation is better than just nodes, and as this will provide you with all the grounds covered at least once, adding another explicit polygon would seem redundant.
If you use just nodes for the schools you will not see the difference between a small school inside the campus of a big school and 2 similar sized schools which share the same grounds (for example).

Cheers, Martin
