There ...

Also can say like 1.我該如何去你的學校? 2.我該怎麼去你的學校? 3.要到你學校該怎麽走? It's not really same using 怎麼走到你的學校 Because the word "走" in here is just like walk, but if in the 3rd one is means how to get there as a spoken language. So 怎麼走到你的學校 is more like How do I walk to your school. You can also use 去 like go to or to go . 怎麼去?== How to get there?

Based on your context, it includes all transportation method. 我该怎么去你的学校 literally "how can I get to your ...
