then,
Isn't it No.1?

I think that the process of speaking is below.

you think about 'school', maybe it would be a word, an image, sound or idea of 'school.'
and then you attach the word 'to' for the direction.
so, you may say like 'to school.'

I think it is not easy or possible to think up 'to' + 'school' at the same time in your mind, is it?

No problem for a native speaker.

No, a native speaker does not go through all that anguish. We just blurt out our response.
Yes, you are right.
I ALSO know it's no problem for natives whatever they think first in their mind.
BUT I just want to know the process or mechanism of your language expression from native's mind.
THANKS ANYWAY,
