    Thanks very much .
    But I think that I study is the right one because I'll stay in this school

    for a year or more and this is repeated action since everyday i go to

    school.

    Isn't it?

    As I said before, in this case both are correct. It's true that there are occasions when we use the simple present to indicate a permanent, regular state of affairs, and the present continuous to indicate something temporary. This isn't one of those occasions.
