How to differentiate between "inside school" and "at school"?

Inside school is "di dalam sekolah" At school is simply "di sekolah"

I wrote "kita membaca dan menulis di sekolah".

But would i be wrong if i wrote "kita membaca dan menulis ada di sekolah"?

Would "ada" define the sentence clearer or "ada" is just not needed here?

The sentence already have verbs ("membaca" dan "menulis"), so adding "ada" is wrong.

Yes femmy is right, ada means exist. So you cant say 'reading and writing are exists' because they're not things
