    School-学校
    At school-在学校- At is a preposition word.

    A and an both mark countable nouns. A is used words not starting in a vowel. An is used with words starting in a vowel. There are some exceptions, as you might call them to this rule, but as a pure beginner you should just understand the basic rule.

    A school
    An elephant.
