No, it's not some sort of ham-fisted symbolism that they're doing Romeo and Juliet at school.
I recall that's one of the books I did for the Shakespeare portion of my English lit course and I found it really fun.

The model for Hatsune's school is the real life Hamura High school. As for why she has the same uniform in middle school, it's an elevator school (I can't account for whether Hamura High really is like this). Plus I really didn't want to put Hatsune in seifuku for the duration of this flashback.

And also, for those of you unfamiliar with the basic components of a Japanese home, Hatsune is sitting on her (absolutely tiny) bath tub in the fourth panel. As you may or may not know, baths are only used for relaxing in, not actual washing, and usually come with a lid to keep the water hot while you're showering elsewhere. I'm assuming her shower head is detachable.
