    Default at school

    When she graduates, she is going to work at (a) school.
    Do we need an article or not?

    Unless you are talking in a context where it is obvious what school you are talking about, you need the article.

    Thanks, Bhaisahab.

    She is going to work in a girls' school.
    She is going to work in the school her son goes to.
