Isn't it really "I want to go to the school? "

See the course notes (https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/17638579).

We always use the definite article in front of places that we go to habitually:

  • i'r gwely
  • i'r ysgol
  • i'r swyddfa
  • i'r capel
  • etc

In English we sometimes do and sometimes don't - Welsh is more consistent.
