  Yes, Santos.  Because you are talking about a specific school, the one you live; so the article THE is required there.

   In practice, if you live near e.g.the Pedro II School , everyone will know that there are only one school near you.  Or in another tought, you don´t live near the Hospital, you live near THE school (there are others buildings near you, hospitals, police stations, barracks etc, but you live near THE school).
