    If you are talking about "school" in general - I am going to school now - you do not need an article.

    If you are talking about a specific school [the one on the corner of the street; the one in the park] - I am at the school for today - you need an article.


    Teachers work in schools
    The teachers work in schools
    That teacher works in the school which is on the main street

    Students attend school
    The students went to school
    This pupil has not been to the school to enrol.
