    school vs. the school (from teachers' perspective)

    Dear teachers,

    I know we don't use the definite article when we speak about the primary purpose of school - Children go to school (to study there). Their parents go to the school to ask about their marks and behaviour. How is it with teachers? Do teachers work at the school/at school/go to school/go to the school?

    Thank you for your answers,

    Katka

    Teachers work at the school.
