Mensagem: 

Another difference between "to go to school" and "to go to the school" is that in the latter you are referring to a specific school.

 

Do you go to school?  (Are you getting an education?)

Yes, I go to the school on the island.  (Yes, I go to a school that has red buildings, roses in front, big trees in back, and has a large parking lot for the parents.  It's on the island, and I can take you to it if you wish.)
